|When you think speakers - do you think of the image to the left? We're thinking public speakers! We are starting to build our class schedule for Autodesk University 2007, and the website is open for people to post class submittals.|
Autodesk University 2007:
When: November 27–30, 2007
Where: The Venetian Resort Hotel
The deadline for proposal submissions is April 30, 2007. You can submit proposals at the following URL:
Am I a potential instructor?
Those of you who have taught classes in the past should have already received a note requesting class proposals. Those of you have not taught before, but have thought about teaching, should submit a class proposal.
Here’s what we are looking for in the presenters…
- People who are comfortable in front of a LOT of people. Depending on schedule and numbers of class registrants, you may have 500-700 people in the room.
- People who are energetic – the shortest lectures are 90 minutes and we frown on snoring in the audience.
- People who can (and will) share real-world best practices and guidance that will help others successfully adopt DWF in production.
There are classes (lectures) and Labs (hands-on) sessions. You should define which type of class you want in your proposal, but we may need to change it as we juggle the agenda. Those of you who are new to this idea may also want to consider being a lab assistant.
Finally – those of you who have never been to Autodesk University, start making the case to your boss now to join us. It really is an amazing event for learning how technology like Autodesk Design Review can be used to solve real-world production problems. The people who are teaching classes have incredible experience and knowledge to share.
