ECOOcamp Ottawa - Tinker, Talk, Transform unconference - August 17th

An “unconference” is professional development that focuses on peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and creativity. It is an attendee driven event where content is driven by participants.

What might you expect? 

There will be no formal presentations in this unconference beyond the opening speaker. Attendees both propose and share the content for the conference. Generally speaking, an unconference has no agenda until you, as the participants, create it.

When you register, you will identify a wondering or an area of interest you would like to explore with your colleagues and the learning will unfold from there! 

Guidelines to support the day

  • Go with the flow
  • Follow your passion
  • Take responsibility for your own learning 

There will be two main themes to explore at this unconference:

  1. participate in a playground focused on “tinkering” with new tools
  2. participate in a session to talk and reflect about  “thinking” connected to technology related to pedagogical practices. 

Let’s Tinker, Talk and Transform!
