edcamp EIU 2017 was a success!
Thanks to all that attended and collaborated to make it a wonderful morning of professional sharing and growth. To learn about the discussions, visit our Topics page.
A morning of free professional development for educators by educators where the participants drive the content. This is the place to share new classroom tools, ideas, and strategies; action research findings; and discussion of hot topics in education. All area educators are invited to participate. Edcamp EIU is an innovative form of professional development providing opportunities for authentic and meaningful collaboration and insightful professional conversations.
No formal presentations or expert presenters - this is an opportunity for thoughtful, professional discussions about the topics and questions that are important to practitioners who are in the room. Let's talk about what matters to you in regards to your teaching - right here, right now!

We know that educators in east central Illinois do innovative things and may face similar challenges. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn from each other, but we need folks to step forward to host sessions and spur conversation. Sign up to host - you won't "present" but you will help get the discussion started!
What should we talk about? You can post an idea or a question like these...
Send Cindy an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to suggest a topic in advance. We will place it on the wall and you can help start the conversation! Everyone can browse topics and add to the list which will grow as more people sign-up.
Then tweet #edcampeiu, send an email or talk to friends and invite them to meet you at Edcamp EIU.
Take advantage of this opportunity to gather with peers and discuss what matters most to you!
The Edcamp EIU planning team and partners include central Illinois K-12 educators, EIU faculty/staff and ROE 11 staff.
