The Idea: To gather a diverse group of interesting people for conversations at the intersection of education and technology. Emphasis will be on big questions generated by the group as opposed to a traditional conference presentation format. If you are looking for a different view point from a practitioner you just met, additional information on a topic not readily known, or something else a bit less predictable, then the Exploring Learning Technologies Unconference (ELTU) is for you.
An unconference has the structure of a conference but the content of the sessions is participant-generated at the beginning of the conference. Every participant should bring a curiosity to learn more and dig deeper into topics in technology and education.
When: Wednesday, October 12, 2016 from 9-1:30PM.
Where: The Ohio State University | College Commons | College of Education and Human Ecology | 260 Ramseyer Hall | 29 W. Woodruff Avenue | Columbus, OH 43210
Who: This event is free and open to anyone interested in networking and sharing in discussion on innovative technology and emerging teaching methods impacting education.
How: The discussion topics (breakout sessions) will be determined on the day of the unconference in a preliminary planning session (Google Doc).
Snackluck: You are encouraged to bring a snack to share as you might for a potluck. If you’d like to share in the snackluck we ask that you bring a non-perishable dish or use cold packs since we will not have a refrigerator near the conference location. Participation in the snackluck is optional; please do not let it deter you from participating in the unconference. A number of us will be gathering for a late lunch after ELTU which you are welcome to join in.
