That’s What We’re Talking About
Posted by Ellen on October 12, 2008
If you haven’t flipped open the October issue of Associations Now, don’t wait. Jeff Waddle’s cover article, “Meetings Remix” hands you several alternatives to standard, passive, PowerPoint-heavy sessions. Except for his insistence that these are for MEETINGS rather than EDUCATIONAL EVENTS (see my post “I am NOT a Meeting Planner”) his article is a great summary of why and how we can make our sessions much more engaging.
Rohit Talwar, in an interview with Lisa Junker (“The Future, Here and Now”) about the Association of the Future initiative, said, “Delivering more online must be part of the solution, because more and more people want online delivery.” At the time of the initiative’s research, it was a “want.” I’d bet that with the economic climate much harsher than it was then that people are now going to demand it. Responsible and forward-thinking education leaders must consider how they’ll move their associations into online learning if they aren’t already there.
All that, and I’m not done reading the full issue yet…
