10:53:13 am langholloman: RT @mrch0mp3rs: @Edstonestreet I’d argue that the follow-up can be way more important than the event — that’s where ideas get adopted. #lrnchat
10:53:25 am Edstonestreet: @mrch0mp3rs #lrnchat fair point.
10:53:38 am holden: #lrnchat Q1) I like speakers that can improvise well. I like well designed group work but 99% of group woork at conferences is poorly done.
10:53:43 am LandDDave: Q1) It may seem like it doesn’t need to be said, but being prepared always works for me as well. We’ve all seen someone who isn’t. #lrnchat
10:53:49 am CanadianPacMan: I make sure my material is there ahead of time. Tell audience material is there to read. Allows for interaction during my session. #lrnchat

10:54:32 am Tina_Barr: Q1) Exit or follow up surveys to improve your speaking can help sign. too! #lrnchat

10:55:09 am holden: #lrnchat @johnoflaherty yes — the worst is a packaged preso not adapted to the local situation (or topic!)
10:55:21 am jpapakalos: @langholloman Q1) Social collaboration after the event is a good way to get those ideas flowing. #lrnchat
10:55:48 am StephanieDaul: @holden or one they have done 20 time before #lrnchat
10:57:17 am StephanieDaul: RT @jpapakalos: @langholloman Q1) Social collaboration after the event …<> #lrnchat
10:58:07 am socialtech: #lrnchat Q1 asking attendees (not just organiser) what they expect (goals, content) from the presentation in advance

10:58:57 am lrnchat: Q2 : What’s your favorite format and why (60 minute-sessions, Machu Picchu, Plenaries)? #lrnchat
10:59:42 am LandDDave: RT @lrnchat: Q2 : What’s your favorite format and why (60 minute-sessions, Machu Picchu, Plenaries)? #lrnchat

11:00:04 am StephanieDaul: Q2) I like different formats throughout the conference #lrnchat
11:00:25 am mrch0mp3rs: Q2) I love being on panel discussions, especially with dynamic speakers. Any panel with @edwsonoma, for example, is awesome. #lrnchat
11:00:36 am LandDDave: Anyone able to define Machu Picchu in 140 characters or less? #lrnchat
11:00:40 am CanadianPacMan: Q2) I like the 60min – covers alot, show samples, allows for interaction. It goes by soooo quickly #lrnchat.
11:01:13 am skiley1013: @nes658 July cont: 2. Participate in the #lrnchat at least once this month. Participate means tweet, not just twatch.
11:01:38 am socialtech: #lrnchat Q2 I think you mean pecha kucha not macchu pichu!
11:01:44 am jpapakalos: Q2) A variety of different session types works for me. The livelier and more interactive, the better. #lrnchat
11:01:55 am holden: #lrnchat Q2) I like the 3 20 minute presos into one slot format. Usually 1 will be worth it, and during the others, there’s always twitter.
11:02:00 am LearnTribe: q2) interactive groupworkshops – more about facilitation than presentation so need to constantly adjust style #lrnchat
11:02:31 am jpapakalos: Q2) Virtual conferences are pretty awesome as far as format goes. Just make sure the technology works and we are golden. #lrnchat
11:02:44 am socialtech: #lrnchat Q2 @landddave 20 slides + 20 secs per slide timed = pecha kucha
11:02:57 am CanadianPacMan: Q2) Did a couple of Petcha Kucha – doesn’t allow interaction and have to limit content sometimes. Intense but great if well prepped #lrnchat
11:03:07 am LandDDave: Q2) Format needs to match context. Ex: If you’re going to discuss a web application, you should us a format to show it live. #lrnchat
11:03:16 am bschlenker: Brent Schlenker, Phx AZ…Oh, wait…I missed that part…wow Q2 already! Time to catch up… #lrnchat
11:04:40 am LandDDave: Q2) Format also needs to match timing. I like 60 min presentations, but not 60 min presentations containing 5 hours of content. #lrnchat
11:04:53 am StephanieDaul: Q2) Pick the format to match the content and audience #lrnchat
11:05:24 am lrnchat: Welcome everyone to #lrnchat. How have you been? Q0 warm up after the rules
11:05:35 am bschlenker: #Ignite has a shortened format as well – I like – forces creative constraints – but needs thoughtful prep/design #lrnchat
11:05:35 am StephanieDaul: @LandDDave or 60 minutes for 5 minutes of content #lrnchat
11:06:36 am lrnchat: Rules for #lrnchat: 1) Introduce yourself. (We do this again at the end). Location? Focus? Fave topics?

11:07:11 am edwsonoma: @mrch0mp3rs Well what a nice note to see as I log in this fine morning! Greetings! and howdy to all #lrnchat peeps🙂
11:07:23 am bschlenker: Q2) What if there was shortened style with room for Q&A? Would that be helpful? #lrnchat
11:07:29 am StephanieDaul: Panel discussion don’t work so well for new concepts – hard to ask questions about something you know nothing about #lrnchat
11:07:55 am LandDDave: RT @StephanieDaul: @LandDDave or 60 minutes for 5 minutes of content <– Oof, I think that's even worse. #lrnchat
11:08:09 am StephanieDaul: RT @bschlenker: Q2) What if there was shortened style with room for Q&A? Would that be helpful? Yes #lrnchat
11:08:18 am socialtech: #lrnchat Q2 I like short format + Q&A, it forces you to prepare but pecha kucha is too constrained imo
11:08:29 am bschlenker: @StephanieDaul I agree. Panels work much better on advanced topics #lrnchat
11:08:29 am CanadianPacMan: RT @bschlenker: Q2) What if there was shortened style with room for Q&A? Would that be helpful? #lrnchat <- depends on depth of content.
11:08:30 am lrnchat: 3) When writing, complete thoughts help followers outside chat learn from you. #lrnchat
11:08:36 am Rsuominen: Q2) Different formats: pecha kucha, 30 min sessions, panels, interactive workshops. #lrnchat
11:08:40 am StephanieDaul: @LandDDave Not always you can pick up another session if you leave right away #lrnchat
11:09:10 am mrch0mp3rs: @edwsonoma You're playing coy. @hybridkris and I want to do a 3hr panel with you and @judyb. That session was just fun! #lrnchat
11:09:18 am SloanConsortium: RT @lrnchat: 3) When writing, complete thoughts help followers outside chat learn from you. #lrnchat
11:09:25 am bschlenker: @socialtech What if there was a longer pechakucha style – similar constrants just more time? #lrnchat
11:09:50 am baldgeekinmd: RT @lrnchat: 3) When writing, complete thoughts help followers outside chat learn from you. #lrnchat
11:09:59 am lrnchat: 5) Periodically RT questions so others outside #lrnchat know what you‚re talking about & they can chime in too. #lrnchat
11:10:00 am candacehr: @lrnchat candace hr and learning tech, focus changing how we think abt training #lrnchat
11:10:10 am CanadianPacMan: I like interactive workshops & opportunity to meet with speaker afterwards. #lrnchat
11:10:21 am baldgeekinmd: Time for #lrnchat the Twice on Thursday Twitter Training and Learning Chat
11:10:41 am StephanieDaul: Q2) What about a Pecha Kucha to start and end and a panel in between? #lrnchat
11:10:43 am chambo_online: 2) I like different formats – if its all the same, I am going to get bored. #ADDkicksin #lrnchat
11:10:58 am lrnchat: If you're seeing me post stuff in repeat… sorry about that. Blame it on the Twitter API and the World Cup😉 #lrnchat
11:11:17 am StephanieDaul: RT @lrnchat: Q2 : What’s your favorite format and why (60 minute-sessions, Machu Picchu, Plenaries)? #lrnchat
11:11:18 am bschlenker: @CanadianPacMan YES. Interactive, engaging + meet and greet – good stuff #lrnchat
11:11:26 am billcush: My tweetdeck just started to go wild…then I realized the early #lrnchat is underway. I had a noon meeting rescheduled so….I may lurk.
11:11:28 am Rsuominen: RT @LandDDave Anyone able to define Machu Picchu in 140 characters or less? #lrnchat
11:12:01 am bschlenker: @chambo_online Good point – mixing up the styles for different topics and different audiences is a good thing #lrnchat
11:12:11 am StephanieDaul: @billcush Welcome #lrnchat
11:12:55 am socialtech: RT #lrnchat Q2 @rsuominen @landddave 20 slides + 20 secs per slide timed = pecha kucha (macchu pichu is a place in peru!)
11:12:57 am candacehr: Q2) I like ignite presentations style and other quick formats but I've seen ppl stuff 2 much into the 60min presentation & ur lost #lrnchat
11:13:31 am StephanieDaul: Q2) I also like 1/2 day sessions if the topic is full enough. Trouble is you have limited time so you miss other things #lrnchat
11:13:40 am LandDDave: @socialtech Thanks sir! #lrnchat
11:13:51 am bschlenker: @edwsonoma @judyb @hybridkris @mrch0mp3rs Consider it done if you want it at that conference coming up in Nov. #lrnchat
11:13:59 am mrch0mp3rs: You can't say Pech/Kuch without a license to use it. Some of us have been yelled at by that organization. Hence "machu pichu." #lrnchat
11:14:17 am StephanieDaul: @socialtech It would be nice to go to a conference in Peru #lrnchat
11:14:39 am billcush: @StephanieDaul Thank you. I usually join the later session… #lrnchat
11:15:14 am mrch0mp3rs: @bschlenker It could be the all-star squadron of panels. Heck, ppl could tag in/out. Like a Panel Royale!!!! #lrnchat
11:15:29 am socialtech: #lrnchat Q2 what can't be broken into good 20min nuggets? just asking…
11:15:42 am edwsonoma: ellen wagner, sonoma CA pecha kucha is fun, needs good prep, tho. Panels w/@mrch0mp3rs, @hybridkris and @judyb are a blast🙂 #lrnchat
11:16:09 am edwsonoma: @mrch0mp3rs Panel Royale. that's funny #lrnchat
11:16:24 am billcush: Most things, I would think…w/ creativity. RT @socialtech: #lrnchat Q2 what can't be broken into good 20min nuggets? just asking…
11:16:42 am bschlenker: @mrch0mp3rs NICE! I'll have the hotel set up a boxing ring, lights, etc…but I call dibs on saying, "LETS GET READY 2 RUMBLE!" #lrnchat
11:16:55 am LandDDave: More info on Pecha Kucha, for those (like me) that need/want to read up on it after the chat. http://bit.ly/11Nqvf #lrnchat

11:17:22 am billbrandon: @mrch0mp3rs There's always "20/20" as an alternate name. Or someone could translate "copyright THIS" into Japanese and use that. #lrnchat
11:17:48 am bschlenker: Remember Brain Rules folks! The idea chunk is 10mins – so you should be able to fit 2 ideas into 20mins #lrnchat

11:19:29 am StephanieDaul: Q3) I hate conference where I can't get a wireless connection #lrnchat
11:19:41 am mrch0mp3rs: Hate's a strong word, but I'm not a big fan when the title sounds like one thing, but the session turns out to be something else. #lrnchat
11:19:45 am chambo_online: 3) Poorly described sessions (I don't want to be trapped sitting at something that wasn't what it was advertised as) #lrnchat

11:32:10 am CanadianPacMan: Q4: Chance to meet 1-on-1 with experts. Hooked up with Flash exprt 4 1 hr. Learned more in that time & worth the price of conf. #lrnchat

11:33:36 am langholloman: #lrnchat Q4) its the process of the physical/social interactions that can't be captured, like dancing on top of tables at 'dinner meeting'

11:38:08 am StephanieDaul: Virtual is good because you can pop in and out in between meeting. Bad – you can miss parts b/c of meetings #lrnchat

11:41:36 am bschlenker: @LandDDave this is true. I kept mine and let it see “The Beard” as something to look up too…a stretch goal #lrnchat
11:41:50 am CanadianPacMan: @bschlenker I have not contacted a speaker before hand – most don’t have email posted. Personally would welcome inquires. #lrnchat
11:42:26 am mrch0mp3rs: @bschlenker I *wish* ppl would contact me about presentations before I presented. Rather use the time to discuss vs present #lrnchat
11:42:33 am bschlenker: With all of the new social media tools available I would expect it to become natural to simply google a speaker and reach out #lrnchat
11:42:50 am chambo_online: @Tim_M_Martin #ARG (Augmented Reality Games or Arghhhhhhh – Zombie cry) #lrnchat
11:42:58 am LandDDave: @bschlenker Come on… It’s a beard, so it’s got to be a ‘growth’ goal, doesn’t it? #lrnchat

11:46:13 am Dave_Ferguson: @StephanieDaul One good way to start presenting is: look at what you do / learn, figure whether/how your exp. could benefit others #lrnchat
11:46:36 am alisonrbcm: @engageandgrow @LandDDave @StephanieDaul even more astounding that conference organisers seem surprised they' can't speak! #lrnchat

11:48:04 am baldgeekinmd: Q4 answer: Easier to hatch insane plots that change the world over a drink in real life. It’s just not as much fun virtually. #lrnchat
11:48:16 am alisonrbcm: @bschlenker but perhaps question should really be how many conference organisers reach out connect with speakers!! #lrnchat
