OK, so with budgets so tight, we have to prioritize where we go for some little 'ole professional development. I mean, we can't just fill out the paperwork, set up the sub plan, and take off for any Tom, Dick, or Harry Wong anymore. So let's help all of us by writing some reviews of the best of the best. Think about what conferences recharge your batteries. Do you tend to like interactive sessions, or (like me) are you a back-sitter who likes to just sit and absorb? Think about what presenters are the most informative and for what subject? What presenters are the most entertaining? Do you like sessions where you walk away with stuff for Monday, or sessions that get you thinking about Someday? Share the names of some Must-Sees: people or conferences, so that we know how to spend what little PD money (or personal funds) that we have.
