Tony Karrer

Shortly, I'll be responding to this month's Big Question with my Predictions for Learning in 2008. I could answer this as the biggest challenges for Learning Professionals generally, and maybe I'll come back and do that, but for now, let me just write what I see as some of my bigger challenges in 2007.
