Talking with Dr. David Metcalf, who will be the keynote speaker at the Questionmark 2010 Users Conference in Miami, is an eye-opening experience!
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:
