Georgia Southern hosts fourth annual EdCamp on Statesboro Campus
Georgia Southern University’s fourth annual EdCamp, a free, participant-driven professional development program for K-12 teachers and educational professionals, will take place on Saturday, April 27, at the University’s College of Education (COE) on the Statesboro Campus from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.
EdCamp is a fun, learning experience built on principles of connected and participatory learning. Unlike traditional conferences, EdCamp invites attendees to decide the sessions for the day based on a consensus of what they would like to learn or discuss.
Throughout the event, attendees are asked to present current classroom practices, learn what others are doing, gain support for employing best practices in the classroom and actively participate in a host of sessions related to teaching and learning.
EdCamps are held worldwide, and last year, more than 150 education professionals shared their knowledge, experience and tools at the COE-hosted EdCamp.
The event is open to all area K-12 education professionals, and free breakfast and lunch will be provided. For more information or to reserve a ticket, visit edcampgeorgiasouthern.weebly.com/ or email Michelle Reidel, Ph.D., at firstname.lastname@example.org.
