I am very excited to have the honor of presenting on a panel at ASTD ICE 2014 in a few weeks! The panel, Differentiate Yourself: Why a Master’s or PhD Matters and How to Complete One, will be moderated by Nandi Shareef.  It’s geared towards anyone considering an advanced degree in ISD or a related field. I know there are a lot of folks out there that are curious and considering, so this should be an interesting discussion.  If you’re in that target audience, I hope you can make it.

ASTD 2014 ICE RegistrationIf you’re unable to attend the entire conference but are in the DC metro area, consider purchasing a one day pass.  They are much cheaper than a full conference pass.  Also, the ASTD Metro DC chapter is looking for members to register as a group for a discounted rate. If you’re not in the DC area and would like some insider information on pursuing an advanced degree in the field feel free to contact me at any time for my lengthy list of pros and cons.


In other ASTD news, I attended a great program last night put on by the Metro DC chapter on copyright for trainers. I’ll be blogging about that today or tomorrow, with some tips from a real life copyright lawyer, so keep your eyes peeled.
