Conferring about learning

Lorcan

It is always interesting seeing how conferences are shaped. Sometimes you will just have a list of speakers strung around various social events. Sometimes you can actually sense the emerging shape of an area or a good overview of its concerns from a well-designed conference program.
I am not quite sure where alt-i-lab 2006 and the Summit on Global Learning Industry Challenges organized by IMS fits on this spectrum, but I found the overview of issues it presents an interesting snapshot. It is also interesting given the mix of academic and commercial voices.
