So….. What on earth is an Unconference?
Unconferences ditch the formality of academic conferences and the pressure to publish, instead focusing on the important networking, sharing and engagement that can inspire great learning and teaching. At an unconference, the agenda is created by the attendees online and then at the beginning of the event. Anyone who wants to initiate a discussion on a topic can claim a time and a space. Sessions can be talking, making, teaching, playing or showing – whatever excites you and the other participants.
