Graduate Student, American University
"Attending my first TK was an easy decision. After working in the healthcare industry (holding various positions in IT, operations, and training) for 24 years, then starting a graduate program in instructional design and learning analytics, it was critical for me to gain exposure to what was going on in the learning and development industry out in the real world. The conference provided the perfect balance of educational sessions, speed sessions, and hands-on learning workshops in addition to downtime to network and recharge. The session presenters were knowledgeable, relatable, and extremely accessible before and after the sessions. The conference mobile app kept me informed and organized, allowing me to prepare my schedule and create an optimal experience. I hope to attend this conference annually!"
