Chris, enjoyed the Skypechat late last night. I think we can all offer a bit of empathy as to the real reason you may not have been blogging as much these days. (Good on ya!)
Glad to see today's forward-push in terms of releasing key details for your first EduCon 2.0 conference . Should ensure that SLA/Philly takes center stage on the edu-front for a few days the weekend of Jan 25-27...with lingering influence long after.
As you say: "...there are some amazing conversations planned".
Agree in spades. Especially with what will follow an amazing host of sessions throughout the 3-day event: Sunday morning's debate with some striking voices/leaders. Even better? All of it will be fueled by participants in the audience sparking where the conversation needs to head. Not too unlike having one of your own students at SLA design the conference logo, huh? (he smiles)
Just bought my plane ticket a few minutes ago. Can't wait to see it all unfold in real time. Oh, and hang with Theo, Jakob, and Kat when downtime arrives.
