    Autodesk University: Now Accepting Proposals for AU 2012—Send Us Your Ideas!

    Autodesk University 2012 (AU) in Las Vegas is coming up November 27–29, and if you’d like to teach a class, the AU Team wants to hear from you now.
    The deadline for submissions is May 22, and it's coming fast.
    What curriculum do we want to see?
    • More advanced courses—Our goal is to have a sizeable number of courses that cater to advanced users. Many attendees have extensive experience with Autodesk® products and are looking for in-depth classes that not only capture their attention, but also examine the product in detail and teach them new and efficient ways to use their Autodesk software.
    • Process and workflow strategies—Attendees are seeking a higher level of understanding about Autodesk products, especially when using multiple products together and using Autodesk Suites. Handoffs within and between products are becoming increasingly important for users.
    • Business management solutions—Attendees come to AU eager to learn about new ideas in business management. Popular topics include ways to improve company workflow, collaboration, and overall efficiency; strategies for adopting and implementing new technologies; and methods for improving concept-to-completion cycles.
    • Product specifics—One of the reasons attendees enjoy AU is because they get topic-specific training they can’t get anywhere else. We want to keep that trend going by offering courses that help users improve their proficiency with Autodesk software.

    To learn more about what we are looking for in each industry track, check out the Call for Proposals website where you can also submit your proposal and get information on speaker honoraria, benefits, and deadlines.
    If you’ve never been a speaker at AU, I recommend that you use the classes on the AU website to help you develop your proposal. Look for highly-rated classes (4 stars or more) in the appropriate track to use as your model. The class handouts and presentations from these classes can provide you with great examples.
    If you have questions, feel free to contact AU Speaker Management.
