Our focus is the venerable conference… Unfortunately, when it comes to face-to-face professional conferences, the kind of 3 day event that takes place at a hotel or convention centre, the literature suggests that this mode of CPE has fallen short of the goal because most conferences are predominantly “informational updates”. There is very little time set aside for “formal interaction”.
  • Highlight the fact that the conference platforms mentioned provide various asynchronous networking tools, but most do not include synchronous tools.
  • This slide may provide an opportuity to engage the audience by having them list presentation software that they are familiar with.
