One of the most unique features of Edcamp is that there should not be a preset schedule. A true Edcamp is built on site the day of the event based on the needs of the participants. Attendees are professionals who are knowledgeable and can learn best form collaboration and discussion. Interest and interaction are at the forefront of the day.
We will hold a Twitter chat in the days before the event to get ideas flowing, but session titles and topics will be set the day of the event - personalized PD set by YOU!
