Some times are better for listening than for talking and writing. The Sage Road team been doing a lot of listening these past few weeks, thanks to being involved in strategic planning work with several of our clients.
But I am getting ahead of myself. First things first. I'm back online. It was good to take a break from blogging, and now I have a few things on my mind that I'm ready to talk about. Look for posts on topics including:
(1) A brief summary of my January visit with the Presidents' Forum in Dallas. This is a group of executives who head up some of the best known online universities in the US. Join me to learn more about one of their key quality initiatives, called Transparency by Design.
(2) Closing thoughts about this year's ASTD TechKnowledge (TK10). I was a member of this year's program committee. I decided to volunteer after listening to chatter about last year's event, when I decided that I preferred to be part of the solution.
(3) Some highlights from the recently completed WCET's strategic plan for 2010/11, and a few ideas about accelerating the adoption of innovative technologies in practice.
(4) Last but certainly not least - A request for ID job descriptions! Cammy Bean and I need your help to build the "Great ID Skills Wordle" for our upcoming session at this year's eLearning Guild Learning Solutions conference in Orlando, FL.
2010 is going to be a very interesting time in the world of technology-mediated learning. Looking forward to sharing the Roadtrip with you.
