This segment, Dennis gets me talking about three new things I learned at the conference. Two of them seem pretty mundane, but are telling about the context of relationships, moving from Twitter to meatspace. Another learning is the realization that there are learning organizations that are kicking serious butt, like the DAU.
This segment, Dennis gets me to open up (get candid) about what surprised me at the conference, including what “collaboration” means to different people, the promise of virtual worlds and the level of trust I place on my Twitter friends.
Continuing from yesterday, this snippet’s questions include…
Who was at the conference, and what were their goals?
How was the conference structured?
What were the big ideas I took from the conference?
Friend and former colleague Dennis Schleicher followed the #iel09 tweetstream last week and was pretty blown away. He offered up his anthropology skills to reflectively interview me to open up about what I thought was so amazing at the Innovations in E-Learning Conference. This is only the first couple of questions:
1. What have I been up to since we worked together last in 2006?
2. Why did I get invited to the conference?
3. Why was I psyched to go?
