Conferences: Entertainment, or Learning?
Don Wettrick

Wow, this has not been my experiences at conferences. While I love the EdCamp model, I also find much value in national conferences. I think the responsibility falls on us, as learners, to seek out the sessions that best meet our needs and not be afraid to get up and move to another session if it’s not what we expect. I have also built meaningful connections with many educators, the famous ones and the ‘regular’ ones, that has helped me grow as a professional and just as a person.
