Rethinking Hybrid and the DCFG Annual Conference

As announced in the October Newsletter, there are very cool changes to this year’s Annual conference in February that will benefit Guild members and beyond. To be fully transparent, I want to share with you some of the ideas and changes we are looking to make. 

First, as much as we wanted to provide an option for virtual attendees to attend live, it is not possible for this year.  This decision was not made lightly; we kept holding out that the simultaneous virtual/in-person conference would work, but it will not - not this year. We cannot risk attempting it to the point that we create a poor experience for all attendees.  The February conference will continue with our successful in-person format.  

What is exciting is that we plan to expand our offerings with the following:

  • Virtual presentations: We will accommodate a few virtual presenters particularly for our International presenters.  Have an idea - submit a proposal! Lots of creative opportunities to think outside the box such as:
    • Presenters could pre-record their presentations and be available virtually for discussion. This eliminates technical issues with presenting live virtually.
    • If a virtual presentation is more interactive (discussion groups, activities) perhaps the presenter could partner with someone in-person to facilitate. 
  • Professional Conference recordings: All sessions for which presenters give permission, will be professionally recorded and edited and be made available 4-5 months after the conference (delay is due to editing etc). 
    • Presenters (that grant permission to record) will receive a professionally recorded and edited video of their presentation to use as they wish.
    • The recording of conference sessions may mark the start of a Content Library for the Guild.
  • 1-Day Virtual Conference: Lastly, we plan to have a 1-day virtual conference to occur 4-5 months after the in-person conference (date TBD) that will provide more opportunities for connection within the DCF community and be styled on our successful virtual conferences in 2021 and 2022.
