Edcamp is an excellent professional development model for teachers. It is teacher run and teacher organized and is always highly rated by participants. There are some great Edcamps coming up around the country too, and you can find out more about them here.
Now, Edcamp is coming for educational leaders. The very first Edcamp Leadership is being held on Thursday, July 26th at the beautiful, modern Foundation for Educational Administration (FEA) Administration Conference and Training Center located at the New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association (NJPSA) headquarters building in Monroe Township, NJ. Click here for images of the conference center. Click here for directions. It's free!
Doors open at 8:00 am with registration, breakfast refreshments, networking, and session-building with your colleagues. This is when you can sign up to lead a session, prepare for the day’s events, and meet some new friends. At 9:30, the organizers will kickoff the unconference and Edcamp Leadership will get underway!
Sessions will be 50 minutes in length, and there will be 10 minutes in between each to allow participants to get to the next room and continue casual conversations following sessions.
Lunch will be provided.
Edcamp Leadership is a free unconference for school leaders devoted to K-12 education issues and ideas. Its goal is to assemble forward-thinking school administrators, board of education members, classroom teacher leaders, parents/community members – anyone interested in K-12 education – for a day of conversation, reflection and inspiration.
Edcamp Leadership is being organized by some very dedicated and talented educators and educational leaders who have also organized Edcamps.
If you are an educational leader, you can't afford to miss out on this incredible day of learning.
