Learning meetings and conferences are about maximising the attendees' learning. Too many conferences are
packed with PowerPoint presentations that achieve too little because they render attendees passive and bored. A learning conference engages attendees in active interpretation of what they hear and helps them share knowledge with each other.Learning meetings must be facilitated carefully, so attendees feel they are being seen and heard.
Let’s get one thing straight: Content is not education!
If content was education, then all of us would be very knowledgeable because we have information at our fingertips through the internet.
But content is not education. Just as information and data is not education.
Offering Content Is Not Enough
People attend conferences for two primary reasons:
Websites designed for mobile devices are popular ways to share information with attendees. However, understanding the differences between, native, web-based and hybrid mobile apps are essential in choosing the right technology for your event or conference.
A web app is an application accessed through a devices browser and is limited by the functionality of the mobile browser. In contrast, a native app is downloaded onto the device, loading all pages/documents when the app is installed thus eliminating the need for a network to view content.
Too many conferences foster attendee information overload.
The plethora of presenters pushing information at warp speeds cause fragmented attention, overburden brains and data excess.
It’s a silent epidemic that cause stagnate mental engagement. And our conference schedules stretch attendees in ways that may have bigger implications than just unhealthy eating. They cause mental disconnection.
