On the heels of ASTD TechKnowledge 2010 in Las Vegas, things are popping in San Diego with the pre-conference start of the 2010 Training Conference & Expo hosted by Training magazine.
This conference represents another amazing event and professional development opportunity for learning professionals from around the world!
I am - once again - restricted to the Chicago area because of my local responsibilities (I'm not complaining, I'm just sayin') so - in an effort to keep up without feeling left out of the fun out west in San Diego, I'm tracking the conference proceedings on Twitter and via other social media applications.
Embedded below is a transcript of the 2010 Training Conference pre-conference Twitterstream from dates 1/29 through 1/31.
For those ASTD Certified Professional in Learning & Performance (CPLP) candidates preparing for the CPLP Knowledge Exam who like to use Twitter, consider paying attention to the following 2010 Training Conference presenters.
Their material could help you improve your exam scores:
Designing Learning / Delivering Training: Bob Pike (@bobpikectt), Thiagi (@thiagi), Nancy Maresh (accelerated learning), Ann Herrmann-Nehdi (HBDI)
Learning technologies (all AOEs): Bob Mosher (@bmosh), Allison Rossett (arossett), Lance Dublin (lancedublin), Ruth Clark, Nanette Miner, Tony O'Driscoll, Marc Rosenberg
Improving Human Performance: Judith Hale
Measurement & Evaluation: Jim Kirkpatrick, Jack Phillips (BTW - Jack's wife, Patti, is CPLP!), Ajay Pangarkar (also see Ajay @ business acumen - Balanced Scorecards & more!)
Managing the Learning Function: Stephen R. Covey, Lou Russell (@nolecture) (if you see Lou, tell her I said GO COLTS!)
Managing Organizational Knowledge: Lori Silverman (ask Lori about the use of story)
Coaching: Scott Blanchard
Career Planning & Talent Management: Beverly Kaye, Garry Ridge (his presentation could also teach you a thing or two about Facilitating Organizatonal Change)
And a shout out to friends & colleagues presenting - whose work is not (yet!) part of the body of knowledge upon which the CPLP is based, but who are cooler than ice cream & deeper than pockets - see Amy Hand, Bjorn Billhardt & Joel MacCharles. :-)
If you're CPLP certified and attending 2010 Training Conference & Expo, don't forget to keep your conference guide, receipt & information about the sessions you attended - you can submit it all for recertification points!
