PHYSedcamp at the National PE Institute 2015
On Tuesday from 4:30 – 7:00 PM, we’ll have the pleasure of facilitating a PHYSedcamp at the PE Institute. Use the hashtag #physedcamp or #PEinstitute15 to be a part of the conversation.
What to expect?
Edcamp is a form of unconference designed specifically for teachers and their needs. Unlike the National PE Institute which has schedules set months in advance, Edcamp has an agenda that’s created by the participants at the start of the event and people are encouraged to have discussions and hands-on sessions.
During the past three years, over 250 edcamp events have popped up worldwide. Teachers from every corner of the globe have been organizing open opportunities for educators to collaborate and solve problems. This is the first time that one is being organized specifically for Physical Education professionals.
- non-commercial and conducted with a vendor-free presence
- made up of sessions that are determined on the afternoon of the event
- events where anyone who attends can be a presenter
- reliant on the “law of two feet” that encourages participants to find a session that meets their needs
