Will an ‘in-house’ unconference work???
Posted on Jul 14, 2010
Had a little thought whilst driving home tonight..
Part of my role involves facilitating the Continuing Professional Development of a number of internal Learning Facilitators. I normally do this by facilitating some lunchtime-learning sessions, which to be quite honest receive a very poor response in relation to the number of facilitators we have on-site (part of this is due to operating a shift-pattern).
I’ve attended quite a few conferences and workshops this year and have gained a great deal from them, so I have hatched a cunning plan…
Book an offsite facility for a day with Wi-Fi access.
Invite all Learning Facilitators to attend.
Set up a Google Moderator series to allow attendees to choose some of the content for themselves.
Invite all delegates to facilitate their own sessions (depending on the number of submissions these could be voted upon)
Offer up a Flip Ultra camera (or something similar) in a prize draw to all attendees.
Encourage delegates to set up a Twitter account prior to the un-conference and provide the support for them in doing this.
Utilise Twitter and other Web 2.0 tools during the un-conference.
