College collaborates on EdCamp Augusta

AUGUSTA, GA. – Balancing on the cutting edge of professional development, the Augusta University College of Education collaborated with the Richmond County School Professional Learning Department on an organic, participant-driven professional learning experience on Oct. 1 at Tutt Middle School. Called EdCamp Augusta, the day-long event was a freeform PD or “un-conference.”

Sessions at an “edcamp” are decided the morning of the event, through participant voting. “Presenters” emerge from the audience to lead discussions in break-out areas on topics of audience interest. EdCamp has no formal schedule of speakers or topics. Anyone can post a topic session, and anyone can lead a session.

More than 200 local educators attended EdCamp Augusta. Click here to enjoy photos of the event.
