The Unconference Experience
Bring your own agenda. You’re going to decide the topics for the day. In the morning, we’ll have a big board with a blank schedule for the day. If you’re interested in facilitating a session, put your topic on the board. As more things are added, attendees can indicate the topics they’re most interested in. Those with the most votes will be added to the schedule.
After a brief welcome, the day consists of four breakout sessions that are chosen and facilitated by the attendees. These might include discussions about particular issues, brainstorming sessions to identify solutions to a common problem, or collaborative sessions to share resources and ideas. All of the sessions will be participatory. While the facilitator may have some resources to share, the contributions of all attendees will make this a truly valuable experience for everyone.
