Some perennial issues remain unaddressed. For example, rooms are still over-crowded for certain popular sessions.
I could have predicted, for example, that the DisruptTexts and TeachLivingPoets sessions would be full to bursting based on chat participation, but neither were in big rooms.
On the other hand, my session, which was up against the ALAN Breakfast and some heavy hitters see belowhad scant attendance, and we were in a ballroom. We are still an echo chamber to some extent.
I tweeted this out twice during the conference: Potentially unpopular opinion, but putting it out there: Who are we not hearing from that we should? I realize not everyone goes every year to hear them, but there are folks presenting multiple sessions, and they do it every year.
And some of these folks have great, innovative ideas. But we need to share the floor. I have presented several times, too—six times since Some of the folks I am talking about have presented six times in the last two years or less.

I hated missing Adichie. He is a dynamic speaker, and I enjoyed hearing from him. I skipped a D session so I could eat and check out the exhibits. I only went to the exhibit hall this one time. The more often I attend this conference, the less interested I am in the exhibit hall.
Dismantling and Rebuilding Reimagining? We missed Kim Parker, but the group shared a stellar rationale for why we need to do this work and how we can do it—even if we have limited options about changing our curriculum, we can still disrupt it.
I do hope they will share their slide deck.
It looked like they had linked some interesting things on the slides themselves and also cited some research worth digging into. Josh Thompson took good Twitter notes see the entire thread: Front and center for disrupttexts.
So many disruptors in here! I have a renewed interest in poetry.
I admit I had let this interest slide because I was looking in the wrong places. We are in the midst of a poetry renaissance, and we need to be sharing these poets with our students.
The picture at the top of this post includes all the books I heard about from TeachLivingPoets either before or at the conference.
