There is one event every year where the eLearning industry’s most influential thinkers gather to share and expand on their knowledge—the DevLearn Conference & Expo, coming up Sept. 30 – Oct. 2 in Las Vegas. The two days prior to the conference are devoted to pre-conference events, including workshops led some of the foremost thought leaders in the learning and performance space.

Not everyone can make it to Las Vegas this fall. But The eLearning Guild’s new eBook, 77 Tips on Today’s Hottest Topics from DevLearn Thought Leaders, shares tips from many of the presenters of the Guild’s Pre-conference Certificate Program workshops, offering readers a little taste of DevLearn 2015.

A preview of upcoming workshops

The 16 contributors featured offer tips in the same areas they will be addressing in depth in their pre-conference workshops. The hints they share in the eBook range from the benefits of using an iterative approach for projects to the importance of taking learners’ mistakes into consideration when designing practice.
