6A Summary

  • After attending two Edcamps I found myself wanting something more higher education focused.
  • Most higher education conferences are expensive and supported by vendors (which means you might receive endless email/phone solicitations).
  • My idea was to create a lightweight Edcamp+ based on the unconference model.
  • Each Edcamp+ would be facilitated by local educational technologists, but would strongly encourage to invite faculty and administration partners to participate.
