Back-to-School Un-conference
 
Ring in the new school year with our SVUSD Back-to-School Un-conference! Participants will be paid academic hourly for 5 hours.

What is an Un-conference?


At traditional conference, presenters are selected ahead of time, and plan a prepared lesson on a topic in which they are interested. If that’s not what you want to learn about, too bad, because that’s what they are going to present.


At an un-conference, there are NO pre-planned sessions. Participants build the session board in the morning, based on the kinds of things they would like to learn and the topics they would like to discuss. This leads to sessions that are much more like discussions than presentations. (If you have ever been to an EdCamp, you have been to a type of un-conference.) Un-conferences are participant-driven, grass-roots professional development days.

Anyone can lead a session


How will this work?


At the opening session in the morning, we'll meet in the Board Room. Attendees will be able to write ideas on yellow or blue cards. Writing on a yellow card means “I want to learn more about this topic.” Writing on a blue card means “I am willing to lead a session about this topic.” We will collect cards, group the yellow cards by topic, and match them to a blue card with the same topic. (If a blue card doesn’t exist with that topic, we’ll get someone to create one.) We’ll then post the cards on the session board. When all the rooms and time-slots are full, the session board is complete, and we’ll transcribe it and post it to a Google Doc so everyone can reference the program throughout the day.


In a session, the “leader” will start the conversation going, perhaps sharing some of their expertise, if relevant. The leader is NOT a presenter, is not expected to have slides or a packages presentation or activities or even any real expertise in the subject. The leader is simply the facilitator of the conversation. In the best un-conference sessions, the leader introduces the topic and never needs to speak again!


If the session turns out to be other than you expect, and it’s not meeting your needs, you should (quietly and politely) get up and go to another session. Your time is too valuable to spend in a session where you’re not learning anything.


At the end of the day, we will meet again in the Board Room to share ideas and lessons learned from the day, and participate in a demo slam!
