ASTDps: July 2012 Chapter Meeting
ICE At a Glance: An Overview of the 2012 ASTD International Conference and Exposition
Not able to attend the ASTD International Conference and Exposition? We will make the most of it by hosting a panel discussion with some of our chapter members who attended! Join Craig Branham, Cynthia Clay, Rick Shor, and Karen Thornton for the conversation and hear what is being talked about by other workplace learning professionals.
We will delve into mobile learning, social learning, innovation, and the role of the learner. The discussion will also include what was heard at ICE that may be counter to popular logic and trends.
