EdcampWNC To Be Held on October 24th in Cullowhee

edcampjaymeLooking for a way to connect with other educators and learn about promising practices in a relaxing environment? Look no further! Edcamp WNC (western North Carolina), scheduled for its third biennial conference on October 24th on the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching (NCCAT) Cullowhee campus, is free for educators across the state. If you’ve never been to an edcamp, you’re in for a treat!

Edcamps are referred to as “unconferences,” meaning they do not follow the typical structure of educational conferences. Edcamps are free and open to all. In addition, participants determine the topics and facilitate conversations throughout the day. Register today to be part of this exciting and rejuvenating day of professional learning!

On Saturday, October 24th, registration, breakfast, and networking will begin at 8:00. We’ll kick off edcampWNC at 8:30 and wrap up with door prizes and a digital smackdown from 1:20 until 2:00. We have several incredible door prizes, so be sure to stick around until the end of the day. Breakfast and lunch will be provided by NCCAT.

We would love to see you there!
