“Getting the most out of an in-person professional conference,” by Kathryn Greenhill, posted on Librarians Matter.
“I just really miss that exciting feeling of stepping out of a conference session, where I didn’t really understand what the abstract in the programme meant, with my mind buzzing with trying to quickly assimilate the new knowledge and ideas into what I already know. That feeling of my professional world..tilting…a little as a big rip appeared in the curtain between me and what was possible and achievable. That feeling of wanting to run out and do something RIGHT NOW.”
After finding herself disappointed after conferences, lately, both by the conference and by herself, Kathryn Greenhill posted some ideas for making face to face conferences more engaging.
