WFSU / PBS Edcamp

WFSU will use the afternoon of the ELC Conference (2018) as our 3rd pilot of this amazing “un-conference” model. After the conference lunch, WFSU will take the stage to introduce the experience and collect topics. These topics will be organized on the spot to create break-out sessions that will include a conversation starter and note taker. Pre-K teachers will take the lead, talking and sharing most important things relative to you and your students. We will have several break-outs throughout the afternoon as well as a cookie break and a raffle.

In keeping with the Edcamp model, this free afternoon of educator empowerment aims to maximize professional learning experience. At the same time, we tailor to your own interests. We hope everyone leaves with a deeper understanding of the breadth of work our education community does on all levels and in all areas.

New to Edcamp?

  • Think EXPERIENCE, not EXPERTS: Anyone can facilitate these sessions. Participants are encouraged to speak up during sessions. Open dialogue and a willingness to share, not planned presentations, drive the learning at Edcamps.
  • Edcamps follow the “un-conferences” model. Participants at the edcamp determine sessions topics, where conversation and collaboration are paramount.
  • The “rule of two feet” empowers participants to find sessions that best meet their needs. If a session doesn’t work for you, we encourage you to find one that does.
  • Edcamps are free. Educators who want to learn and collaborate are welcome, at no expense. We do ask that you please register, and show your ticket upon check in.
  • Educators AND ADMINISTRATORS from any and all backgrounds are invited.
  • You will earn In-Service credits for your time, AND we feed you dinner.

Did you join us for our first Edcamp in November or our 2nd one in March, or are you otherwise familiar with the model? Email Hannah at hpower@fsu.edu – we’d love for you to be a Conversation Starter!
