You might be asking yourself 'How can I teach Facilities Management CAD
and/or CAFM to other professionals; to share my hard-earned knowledge
and solidify my reputation as an expert in my field?'

That's easy... just suggest a course at Autodesk University 2007
(November 27th through 30th)!!!


I've been attending AU since I was 21... and haven't missed a year yet
(and don't intend to). In the beginning, it was just for CAD classes,
but, the past couple of years have seen some really great FM and CAFM
classes. Props and effusive thanks to those who have stepped up to teach
them.

Much of what would be taught in a Facility Management course would be
practice-based over software-specific... but, of course, those odd
little software tips, that noone but FM'ers would use, thrown in are
always appreciated.

So, please submit an FM course to teach, we want to learn more.

(fair warning: if you're really just there to talk about your services,
etc, I, and others, WILL ding you on your evaluation and those are used
to determine whether you'll be asked to come back and teach again... I
assure you; if you provide GOOD information to the class and simply post
your contact information/bio on your slides, your reputation will gain
big points with the audience. That used to be something I encountered a
lot, but, happily, haven't seen any of lately.)

If you'd like to see some examples of past FM courses at AU, check out
this page for a list with descriptions (see what could be updated or
expanded upon) of classes between 2002 - 2005

and here for a course title listing (no descriptions, the handouts
haven't been posted publicly yet) from AU2006
http://mistressofthedorkness.blogspot.com/2006/08/facilities-management-fm-classes-at-au.html


So... I beg of you, pitch your course idea to the AU planning team and
help to make this the best Facilities Management training opportunity yet!

Thanks!

teaching at AU)

On this website, you will find proposal guidelines and resources to help
you develop your class proposal.

First, you'll provide some personal information over a secure server.
Next, you'll submit information about the session(s) you wish to
present. We welcome multiple submissions from experienced presenters.

We look forward to hearing about your class ideas and seeing you at AU 2007.

The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2007.

We select the most qualified speakers based on

* communication skills and technical expertise
* depth of relevant background and experience
* strength of proposals and their relevance to today's industry
trends and best practices

Speaker Honoraria for Autodesk University 2007

* Each instructor teaching a 3.5-hour lecture or hands-on lab will
receive a US$1,000 honorarium per 3.5-hour session, plus one
complimentary, non-transferable 4-day conference-only pass — valued at
approximately US$1,300. For any session taught by multiple speakers, the
honorarium will be shared equally — however only one complimentary
conference pass per session will be provided.
* Each instructor teaching a 90-minute session (lecture, lab, or
panel) will receive a US$350 honorarium per session, plus one
complimentary, non-transferable 4-day conference-only pass — valued at
approximately US$1,300. For any lecture or lab session taught by
multiple speakers, the honorarium will be shared equally — however for
panel participants, only the moderator will be compensated. For any
session with multiple speakers (including panels), only one
complimentary conference pass per session will be provided.

Guidelines for Writing Session Learning Objectives
* Learning objectives relate to tasks, skills, and knowledge
needed on the job.
All learning objectives must relate to the tasks, skills, and
knowledge that the student uses on the job. The purpose of training is
to teach students how to do something. The prime objective is not to
learn about something, it is to learn to do something.
* Learning objectives are action oriented.
Learning objective statements must always describe actions the
student will be able to do when finished with the training; they do not
describe what they will be doing during the training.

I second the motion!

If you would like to speak in the FM Track at Autodesk University 2007, you might like to know what type of sessions the review committee is looking for! Consider the following as a guideline. We'd like to see pretty focused sessions on using applications to accomplish specific tasks such as: disaster planning/recovery, indirect cost recovery, capital replacement planning, JCAHO Statement of Conditions, and so on. Also desired are case studies of specific implementations, especially when they highlight a customer specific problem and solution, such as bar coding, or tough data requirements.

The deadline is April 30th, but if you get your submission in early, we have more time to help you revise it to fit with other sessions being considered.

Do you still make instructors pay for their own airfare, hotel, and food?

Autodesk University provides instructors with free conference registration (which includes the meal tent for breakfast and lunch) and a $350 honorarium. Instructors are responsible for their hotel cost and airfare.
