"Teaching at InfoComm workshops through the years has enabled me to better understand the industry and see new perspectives. It has been great to pass on technical subject matter to others and to hear about some of the challenges they face in using technology to communicate through their questions and class interactions. As an instructor at InfoComm I have been able to interact with other instructors and sit in on their courses. This has done a tremendous amount to educate me about other areas of AV technology and the industry as a whole. I would recommend teaching to anyone who is fascinated about the industry and likes to talk about it. It is a rewarding experience that you don’t find every day."
