Listen to Session Recordings from NCDD Seattle!

One of the local heroes of our conference in Seattle this year, longtime NCDD member and NCDD2012 All-Star Sponsor John Spady, worked tirelessly during the event to record as much content as he could, and has recently shared the audio recordings he collected on SoundCloud.com.

Since many of these items were recorded from the audience, the sound quality does vary, but there’s some great stuff here, with over 20 recordings capturing both workshops and plenary sessions.  I strongly urge you to spend some time with them, especially if you weren’t able to attend in October. Below you’ll find two samples, Carolyn Lukensmeyer’s take on the conference theme from Day Two and a recording of the Demystifying Online/Offline Engagement workshop.

You can listen to all of them (and comment on specific parts of each track) on the SoundCloud website, or check out the complete list after the break.
