EDCAMP CHARLOTTETOWN 2017

edcampThe Faculty of Education will host the second Edcamp Charlottetown on March 11th from 9am-3:30pm.

Edcamps are often described as ‘un-conferences’: democratic, freeflowing gatherings with no predetermined speakers or session titles.  Edcamps focus on channelling the voice of participants and exploring the themes that are relevant and pressing on the day.

Edcamps are open to educators, students, and community members – anyone with an interest in education is welcomed. We hope you will attend this dynamic day of dialogue, networking and brainstorming. You can find more information here.
