Reflections on ISPI 2010

Clark Quinn

Early in the year, I gave a presentation online to the Massachusetts chapter of ISPI (the international society for performance improvement), and they rewarded me with a membership. The ISPI organization gave each chapter a free registration to their international conference, which happens to be in San Francisco this year (just a Bart trip away), and I won! Now, it probably helps to explain that I’ve been eager to attend an ISPI conference for quite a while.

eLearning 2.0 Presentation - ISPI Los Angeles

Tony Karrer

I had a great time this Saturday presenting to ISPI Los Angeles on eLearning 2.0. This presentation was somewhat similar to past presentations, but I've added a couple of new slides and concepts. I'm including my slides (via Slideshare below, but it misses a lot of what the discussions were really about). Oh, and if you are interested in this topic, I will be presenting a slightly different take on it this Thursday at a Free Online Conference - Corporate Learning: Trends and Innovations.

7 Learning Industry Websites You Need To Know


International Society of Performance Improvement (ISPI). Much like ASTD, ISPI is a good place to start if you want to read some great content on by some of the fields' most prominent people. That said, you do not need to be a member of ISPI to benefit.

Backchannels – what’s all the fuss, anyway?

Integrated Learnings

I recently attended the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) conference in Orlando, Florida. For example, the backchannel for the ISPI conference was #ispi. For example, “#ispi consider using Captivate for eLearning simulations.” Then, anyone can search “#ispi” and locate all of the comments being made on that backchannel. By Dean Hawkinson.

Your Training Edge

First, go to your industry network, such as colleagues in the training and development business or your local ATD or ISPI chapters. The process of finding an LMS vendor can be just as taxing as the whole LMS implementation process in general.
