BANGOR, Maine — EdcampBangor, a free professional development opportunity for educators and administrators, will be held 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25, at Husson University.
Dubbed an “unconference,” Edcamp has an agenda that is created by participants at the start of the event. Instead of one person standing in front of the room talking for an hour, attendees are encouraged to have discussion and hands-on sessions. Sponsors don’t have their own special sessions or tables; all of the space and time is reserved for the things that people are interested in talking about.
“Edcamp strives to bring teachers together to talk about the things that matter most to them: their interests, passions and questions,” according to the Edcamp Foundation website.
