I’m writing today from the 2010 Questionmark Users Conference in downtown Miami. We kicked off last night with a poolside reception at the Hilton Miami Downtown and have a full day of case studies, technical training, best practice presentations and discussions ahead of us.
Enjoying the Sunday night reception at the Users Conference in Miami
We’re fast approaching the first early-bird deadline for the Questionmark 2010 Users Conference.
If you register by this Friday, December 4th, you will save $200 off the full registration fee. The conference program is taking shape, so check out some session titles on the schedule-at-a-glance.
Case study topics include Integrating Perception and SAP, Using Flash and Captivate with Perception, and Distributing the Workload and Increasing Accessibility with Questionmark Live. You will also see some Best Practice and Tech Traning topics listed. There are more to come, so keep checking the site.
The Conference offers great opportunities for technical training on Questionmark Perception as well as instruction on how to write better assessments. Delegates will see the latest Questionmark product developments and will influence what happens next. Meeting other Perception Users and learning from their experiences is another major plus of attending the Conference. There’s really no better place to immerse yourself in learning how to get the most from your assessments.
If you missed our podcast with keynote speaker Dr. David Metcalf, click here and spend a few minutes listening to our conversation about the future of assessment.
In his work at the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation and Training, David is constantly engaged in the future of learning and assessment. As a research faculty member, he is responsible for inspiring innovation in the field of learning and performance. And as an independent researcher, analyst and consultant, he guides business transformations for learning organizations. A recent conversation with David gave me a taste of what’s in store for us at the conference in his address, Assessments on the Move: Mobility, Mashups and More.
The conference will be about the here-and-now as well as the future, with tech training sessions to bring people up to speed with the latest features and functions of Questionmark Perception. Case studies, best practice presentations and peer discussions will round out the program, along with drop-ins with the Questionmark technicians and focus groups led by our product managers.
Our earlybird registration deadline is looming on December 4th, so it’s a good time to get acquainted with the conference Web site and start making plans for a trip to Miami next March 14 – 17.
In the meantime, take a few minutes to ponder the future of assessment as you listen to this podcast:
We are looking forward eagerly to the Questionmark 2010 Users Conference set for March 14 – 17 in Miami. One of the many conference highlights will be a keynote by Dr. David Metcalf, a senior researcher at the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation and Training. David, who is also an online faculty member at Walden University, explores leading edge innovations in learning and has authored several recent works including mLearning: Mobile Learning and Performance. His keynote address about Assessments on the Move: Mobility, Mashups and More will examine key trends, design techniques, and technologies that are emerging to meet the assessment challenges and changes of today and tomorrow.
Questionmark customers will play important roles in the conference program, too! So now’s the time to answer our call for proposals for case studies and peer discussions.
