The Coalition of Essential Schools plans to incorporate an UnConference into their 2011 Fall Forum. Quoting from their announcement:
“On Friday, November 11, educators attending Fall Forum will have the opportunity to participate in an afternoon that will introduce them to unconferences, a rapidly growing form of open space professional development. Fall Forum will follow the popular Edcamp model. ”
“On Friday during lunch, any Fall Forum attendees who wish to lead a session during the unconference afternoon will be able to sign up for a time on the blank schedule board. Sessions can be on any topic related to education, and participants are encouraged to share their professional interests and passions, powerful lesson plans, and new resources.”
Dan Callahan, Edcamp Philly co-founder and Edcamp Foundation board member, will be assisting with the design & organization of the UnConference portion of the Fall Forum.
It’s great to see an organization like the Coalition of Essential Schools embrace the UnConference model!
