Have you ever tried to describe ‘a good vibe’ to someone else? How did that work out? In my experience, it’s not that easy to convey the experience of a good vibe to someone who was not part of the experience. Yet, in this edition of the Learning Notes, I’ll do my best to share the good vibes and interesting content of the Learning Solutions Conference 2018 (also known as #LScon).
First, the location was the Rosen Centre in Orlando - follow the link and some palm trees will pop-up (talk about good vibe!).
Second, David Kelly, Bianca Woods, Mark Britz and their team managed to bring together a wonderful mix of serious and playful elements at this conference. Pre-conference certification workshops, Presentation Roulette, tons of professional sessions, ‘Game Crawl’ and a wonderful DemoFest.
Hope you'll be able to 'enjoy' the conference through these notes.
Roberts shares her experience from different perspectives: as a conference visitor and speaker and as a participant of a pre-conference workshop on Learner Experience Design (we were classmates and worked together in a great team – see results, picture 1).
Why read it?
The three perspectives give a nice, broad view of what you can experience at the conference.
The post contains slides from Roberta’s presentation, ‘Adopting a Performance Support Mindset’. You should know that Roberta is a Learning Experience Designer who is part of a User Experience Design department – very interesting!
Read about Roberta’s ambition to become a speaker at a conference: she succeeded! I hope it will inspire more people to take the initiative to become a speaker. Who’s next?

What’s it about?
My colleague, Corjan Bast, captured the three keynote sessions at the conference and had a private chat with the speakers. As we always say: ‘Learn from the Bast’.
