EdCamp comes to Keene

From Mike Caulfield, CELT:

On August 18, CELT and the Southwest NH Educational Support Center will be hosting EdCamp Keene, an “unconference” for college and K-12 educators.

This conference is part of a recent national movement of educational “unconferences,” and follows the success of the EdCamp Philly conference earlier this year. EdCamps are informal conferences where the participants make up the conference agenda on the morning of the conference, based on who has brought something to present, and what the attendees want to see. The focus of an EdCamp is generally on practical pedagogy, but participants have wide leeway to present whatever they think might interest attendees — educational technology, community-based learning, techniques for teaching composition, new issues in science education. There are EdCamps in the works for New York City and Boston, but EdCamp Keene will be the first in the Northeast, and is already drawing people from as far as Pittsburgh and Portland.

EdCamp Keene also represents a significant variation on the EdCamp formula: For the first time we are bringing together educators from higher education and K-12 for this event, on the theory that we could probably learn an awful lot from one another. If this experiment is successful, it has the possibility to influence future events, and lead to a better partnership between primary, secondary and higher education.

Please come and be part of this historic event!

The conference is free, and lunch will be provided. There’s more about the conference at the EdCamp Keene website.

Please register if you think you even might be going, as we need to estimate food requirements. There is no obligation.
