After not even really thinking about conference talks for about a decade (HighEdWeb 2004), I’m going to be speaking in public TWICE this year:
- AlterConf Seattle, May 30 – Establishing Your Core Values
- Confab Higher Ed, November 4-6 – Better content with work sessions
In both cases, I’ll be talking about things we’ve done at work, what went well, what failed horribly, and so on.
The core values talk sounds really mission-statement-y, but the act of deciding what to measure our actions against was surprisingly important in the last two years of site changes. (Why yes I am trying to figure out exactly what I’m going to say four weeks from now!)
On the other hand, the work sessions presentation will be more tactical, sharing a particular process that we’ve evolved to get stakeholders involved in developing better web content. Also likely to include lots of psychology, because people.
I’m very excited to hear all the other presentations at these events, too!
