Tomorrow, I’m joining educators from around the region at an UnConference at The Ellis School here in Pittsburgh. UnConferences are terrific: they’re gatherings without a pre-set agenda that allow attendees to share their interests and passions and then foster impromptu discussions and presentations. I’m a big fan of unconferences; I attended my first one last October at the OETC IntegratED conference at Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep in SF, and I was hooked. The energy and excitement of sharing out ideas on the fly is terrific. It’s a great way to harness the expertise and passions of all the people in the room, and it’s a great fit passionate educators who are hungry for ways to learn and grow in their practice.
I’ll be posting live to Twitter during the conference and I’ll post a debrief about my adventure next week. Watch this space to find out more!
