I spend a fair amount of the time in the front of the room, teaching, training, facilitating, sharing the work that we do. It is a part of what I do that I enjoy. Once or twice a year, I get to go to a conference and be entirely on the other side, there to listen and learn. Especially if it on issues I know I lack knowledge or expertise on, I usually enjoy it. Recently I went to a conference on aging issues in native American populations. I learn so much about culture, values, beliefs and practices from this group.
When was the last time you went to a conference on something you are not an expert on?
