The 2011 Nonprofit Technology Conference will sell out shortly. Fortunately, we have a great alternative: the Online NTC. There are only about 150 spots left, with 16 days to go -- and because of space limitations, this year's cap will be a hard one. So, if you've been putting off that registration, don't wait much longer. We hate to turn people away, but we won't have a choice this year.

Community Day Community is definitely not new at the NTC; it's one of the main reasons people tell us they attend. What's new is how we frame the first day of the NTC.

NTC Reflection: How To Make Your Conference Panel A Magical Learning Experience

That’s the questions I asked myself as I designed my panel for the NTEN’s annual conference, the NTC. As many trainers and teachers already know, people have different learning styles. Howard Gardner has dedicated his life work to this Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Yet, many conference panels are designed to accommodate only one or two styles of learning and go shallow instead of going deep.
