EdCamp Charlotte

What is EdCamp?

EdCamp Charlotte is a user-generated “unconference” event for anyone who is interested in improving student success. An “EdCamp” is based on the “BarCamp” event model for providing open, participatory workshop events, with content provided by participants. Education professionals and attendees make a quick pitch to speak or present a session during EdCamp. Attendees then vote on what they would like to see, creating the schedule of events for the day. Anyone can pitch a session, so start working on your pitch and session content now. It’s a fun, innovative and free way for the community to gather, exchange ideas and share experiences.

Topics at an EdCamp 

Topics often discussed or presented during an EdCamp include but are not limited to teaching and learning, pedagogy, instructional design, instructional technology, e-learning, distance education, mobile learning, improving the quality of education, best practices, instructional emerging software applications and technologies, social media and social learning, learning management systems, course management systems, Blackboard, Moodle, course content creation, classroom management and much more!

Here’s How it Works

  • Anyone with ideas that they want to share makes a pitch to the group.
  • After the pitches, everyone votes on what sessions they want to attend.
  • The votes are tallied, the agenda is set and the learning commences!
  • Presenters and attendees meet in assigned rooms for the sessions.

Save the Date: TEDxCharlotteED

A successful K-12 public education system means so much more to a community, a city, a state and a country than just providing a space for students to gather for nine months each year. A successful education system creates a profitable economy and a safe Tedxcommunity. There are many powerful stories of how schools have risen above challenges because businesses, faith-based groups, non-profit organizations and neighborhoods have stepped up to provide resources of time, talent and dollars to enrich the lives of students. It is time these stories are told and inspire others to do more. It is time for TEDxCharlotteED.

On March 28, we invite you to attend TEDxCharlotteED from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in the Halton Theater. We have reserved the 350+ seats in the balcony for CPCC students, faculty and staff so you may participate in as much of the day as you would like. There will be three blocks of TEDxTalk speakers (on average, four speakers per block) tentatively scheduled for the following times:

Block 1:  8:30 – 9:40 a.m.

Block 2: 10 – 11 a.m.

Block 3: 11:20 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
