Already this year I’ve done, in addition to podcasts and webinars, The L&D Conference, ATD ICE, and DevLearn. What else? Coming up before the end of the year are a couple more things. So here’s “where’s Clark this time?”.
- First up is the ATD Core 4 conference in Nashville Nov 15 & 16. There’s a real all star lineup in the concurrent sessions. I’ll be speaking on learning science, of course. This event is in person (with masks).
- I’m also part of the Symposium on the Economics of Ignorance on 30 November. I’ll be talking about myths here with Matt Richter, but the overall premise is interesting in several ways. One is considering what ignorance costs us! The other is the approach of interviewing experts to to generate actionable ideas. Virtual.
- Then, on 1 Dec, I’ll be starting my ‘Make It Meaningful’ workshop with the Learning Development Accelerator. I think this is the missing element in our design, and I’ve spent the past 1.5 year getting it designed. (Or the past 40, if you consider my work understanding engagement from when my career got started by designing learning games!). Emotions matter in learning, and we can systematically take our learning from didactic to transformational. Online.
- Finally, I’ll be the opening keynote for ATD’s Japan Summit Dec 6-10, talking about new cognition and organizational implications. Virtual, at least for me!
Those are the biggies, there’s at least one more webinar on the calendar this year too. All but Core 4 are virtual, so it’s easy to attend (though the timing of the Japan Summit will be awkward!). If you’ll be at any of these, say ‘hi’! (I’m an introvert and a ham; I may appear social when presenting, but normally I’m not aloof, just shy. At least until I get to know you. ;) So the answer to “Where’s Clark this time” is online and in person.
