Conference Presentation Proposals
I just wondered if I'm the only one who thinks that sending out a call for proposals and only giving the audience about 2.5 weeks to prepare something is frustrating.
I always think I would love to share my knowledge of Instructional Design, eLearning, Storyline, all those hot button topics at a major conference (i.e. DevLearn hosted by the eLearning Guild) but the conference is in November and they only just sent a CFP out TODAY with a deadline of April 15.
I suppose that those who typically present at these conferences may already have proposals prepared and once you have it created you can just submit to multiple conferences quickly but what about those of us who haven't even entered this world of conference speaker yet?
By the way Articulate people, they are also looking for vendors and sponsors and Captivate seems to be a SERIOUS sponsor of the eLearning guild, it sure would be nice to see more of the amazing Articulate products (particularly Storyline) out there.
I realize this may not be the best place to post this question, but it's the only place I can find where eLearning professionals are gathering and actually interact with each other on a regular basis.
