I’m heading to a conference this week.  Not on elearning or learning at all for that matter.  This is an HR conference.  With HR practitioners.  Here in Canada, we tend to have a lot of regionalized business (hey, it’s a big country and we are spread out a lot), so most of my clients don’t have a huge operation, nor a huge “training” department, but may have a specialist that reports in through HR.  And, they need help in figuring out how to approach learning.  Both the hard and soft sides of learning.  So, in other words, these are my clients. 

I’ll be attending some interesting sessions – and for the most part just listening and reflecting.  The big question that I’m going in with is this: “are conferences really legitimate learning opportunities, and if so, just where do they fit?”
