Spontaneity, edutainment and self-directed learning continue to be growing themes at ASAE events, but options for those who want to follow a predefined, deeply substantive path have also been increased for the 2017 ASAE Annual Meeting & Expo in Toronto, Aug. 12-15.

“Self-directed is the way things are moving,” said Rhonda Payne, ASAE Chief Learning Officer. “In our society in general, content has gone a self-directed route where folks proactively go after what they want when they want it.

“We’re trying to craft a conference format that allows people to behave the way they behave the other 361 days of the year,” she said.

ASAE piloted pop-up learning sessions last year, and scope for those has been expanded from 30 to 60 this year, Payne said.
