Weekend Adventure: Design Thinking UnConference at Ellis School

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.

You can learn more about UnConferences here, and you can learn more about the Learning Innovation Institute at Ellis here.

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!
