Getting the most from Educause
We were fortunate this year to able to send 12 people to Educause, including 6 first-timers, and some of our younger staff. Everyone got energized, attended great sessions, met new people, came back full of ideas. We are going to hold a debriefing on Friday to share our experiences and how we can put some of what we learned into practice. But, yes, we are also back at work…and you know how the buzz and promise can dissipate quickly.
Do any of you have good practices to share on how we can convert all that new knowledge and enthusiasm into our ongoing work? This is a phenomenon not exclusive to Educause; it can happen anytime someone returns from a professional development activity, a visit to another campus, or whatever.
It’s clear we need a better mechanism for staff who have ideas to bring them forward in our organization. Thanks in advance for anything you can share.
And hey, it was great to see all of you in Philly!
