Participant-driven. Sessions are determined the morning of the event, and there are no prescheduled presentations or keynotes. The goal is to keep sessions spontaneous, interactive and responsive to everyone’s needs.
Free to all attendees. This helps ensure that different types of teachers and educational stakeholders can attend.
Experience, not Experts. All teachers and education stakeholders are professionals worthy of sharing their expertise in a collaborative setting.
Reliant on the Rule of Two Feet. Participants are encouraged to actively self-select the best content and sessions. Edcampers should leave sessions that do not meet their needs. This provides an effective way of “weeding out” sessions that are not based on appropriate research or not delivered in an engaging format.
