  • "Unconference" for New and Pre-Service Teachers

    AUGUST 5
    12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

    Mohegan Sun Convention Center

    Unconferences are a relatively new, engaging, peer-to-peer learning-focused, collaborative and creative way to share information and learn new topics. In an unconference, participants will have the opportunity to put conference sessions on the agenda through focused conversations and facilitation, thus driving what's discussed throughout the day. The sessions could range from the formal to the informal: from the well-thought-out prepared talk reflecting years of research and practice, to the spur of the moment new idea that would be fun to discuss or review; from the demonstration of a working tool, to the working-through of something completely new.
