EdCamp

Setting the Schedule

At the beginning of Our Mini-EdCamp, we'll all submit ideas for sessions. You might submit something you want to learn about or something you are excited about. Think of it this way, if you could design a professional development for yourself, what would be the topic?


We will be looking for folks to facilitate the conversations. You don't have to be an expert on a topic, you just have to be willing to get folks talking about the topic.


When we've collected all the ideas, a group of volunteers will sort through the ideas, and together, we will set up the sessions.

Breakout Sessions

Session Rules:
  • The Rule of Two Feet
    If you are neither learning nor contributing, you are responsible for moving to another place; use your two feet to find a place where your participation is more meaningful.
  • The right people are the people who are present.
  • Whatever happens is the only thing that can.
  • Whenever we start is the right time.
  • When it is over, it is over.


Sessions should:


  • Be thought of as meaningful conversations among colleagues.
  • Have the goal that everybody finds value by participating in the conversations.
  • NOT be thought of as presentations.


Role of Facilitator

  • Guide folks in sharing their own experiences and appreciating the experiences of others.
  • Be a good listener.
  • Try to give everyone a fair share of the time.
  • Be open to all viewpoints.
