EdCampOKC is This Weekend!

So this Saturday is EdCamp OKC but it is in Norman at Irving Middle School!   I am super excited because I love to see our students and grads and hear what they are up to.

Check out what an EdCamp is all about

 

They still have seats left, I really hope that you will join us!

Why to EdCamp as a Professor:

  1. it helps you build connections with local schools!
  2. It helps your students network and find jobs.
  3. You learn new things!
  4.  You get ideas for your classroom.
  5. Even if you don’t teach teachers, it can help you know what is happening in K-12 schools and improve your way of reaching Freshman and underclassmen at the University.
  6. You can learn about the Unconference Model.. (we should do more of this in Higher Education).
  7. It is Fun!

How do I Edcamp?  I am more a hallway person,I may not go to many sessions but I talk to everyone. Also, I always do a session about what future teachers want to know.  My students are usually too nervous to run their session, but I can lead them and model for them.   In this session, I invite teachers and administrators to come and answer our preservice teacher questions.   It is a lot of fun, I get to know my students better, and I love how administrators that I don’t know come to meet potential employees.

If you are a professor, there may be an EdCamp near you and this would be a great way to connect with your community.
