Few conferences are organized in a learning-centered way, and we wish to change that. Factors of adult learning include personal relevance and discussion, which we intend to include with a number of innovations.
The main one is conference theme “My Burning Question!” which provides a unique participant-centered approach to how the conference is done. The first Saturday session will put participants into random triads (groups of 3) and asked to come up with one or more burning questions that they would like to answer. During the rest of the day, the participants will look for answers to their own and triad members’ questions in the presentations, and at the end of the day, they will assess what they learned.
Other innovations include presenter training if requested, energy breaks, a new presentation type called “Topic Talks” (to replace poster sessions), unconference sessions, and reflections on “takeaways.” See Innovations section for more on these.
The Venue will be the beautiful and easily accessible Harmony Campus in Clackamas.
