I thought that CAC overall was an overall great experience for networking and idea sharing. My favorite new idea that was shared was "Instructional Design for Sports" by Brian Seely. I think this innovative idea is going to change the way everyone thinks about sports, but especially coaches. I can't even tell you how many times I would forget a play in basket ball and my coaches would scream at me. I can also recall a few times where I actually got benched for not knowing a play. It is hard to really take in information while I was sweaty, tired, and thirsty. If I could have learned the plays while I was at home relaxing on my couch I think I would have had an easier time retaining the information. I think that using e-learning tools to develop training for sports is a great idea. Also, Brian really targeted his audience by using the talent which he did. The training would not have had the same effect if it was from a teacher or an older individual. Overall I was very excited by Brian's presentation and can't wait to see what happens in the future!
