The theme of this year’s event is Moments of Insight: Bursting the Bulb. This theme is meant to inspire people to think about their own personal and/or professional learning moments; moments in which the metaphorical light bulb bursts in one’s head. Moments that have changed a person’s worldview about the way something was supposed to work. Moments when someone realizes that some discovery was bigger than a current theory or personal belief. Moments in which a person and/or a field of inquiry grew personally, professionally, scientifically, or spiritually. Moments which come to define a person or field of inquiry. We all have such moments and sharing one’s insight could revolutionize others' ways of thinking.
