The DevLearn Docent program serves to enhance the conference experience for any attendee interested in having an industry expert guided experience. The program is completely optional and you can participate in as few or as many of the guided activities as you'd like.
Here are a few highlights of the Program:
- A dedicated Morning Buzz session each morning, where attendees can talk about and plan the day’s events and share previous day reflections
- Group attendance at the general sessions, including scheduled time to debrief
- Hosted lunch tables with industry experts
This is a great opportunity for anyone planning to attend the DevLearn Conference & Expo.
Creative Storytelling via Visual Note-Taking
Sketchnotes are growing in popularity as a form of capturing and sharing information. They are especially popular at conferences, and we’re excited to place a spotlight on this growing trend that exists at the intersection of art and learning.
What Are Sketchnotes?
The Sketchnote Army describes sketchnotes as “purposeful doodling while listening to something interesting. Sketchnotes don’t require high drawing skills, but do require a skill to visually synthesize and summarize via shapes, connectors, and text. Sketchnotes are as much a method of note-taking as they are a form of creative expression.”
What’s Going on at DevLearn?
We’re bringing in a professional sketchnote artist to capture key learnings from our keynotes and many other sessions, which will enable attendees to see these works of art come to life. You will also enjoy a growing gallery of sketchnote boards on display throughout the conference.
We encourage you to join in the fun and try sketchnoting for yourself. If you do, be sure to share your sketchnote with the community by adding the hashtag #DevLearn to your social media posts.
“This is the first learning conference that I’ve been to that I found to be relevant to my role. The amount of knowledge and sharing was amazing! I enjoyed connecting with other people in the same industry with similar challenges, and I learned some tips on how to deal with those challenges.”
