We need you!

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... 

  • Has anyone done _____? What worked? What didn't? 
  • Who wants to collaborate and ______?
  • Does anyone use ______________? (hardware, software, resources)
  • I love ____________!
  • I teach __________ (content area? grade level?)
  • My students ____________
  • Let's talk about ________________
  • Next year I plan/want/have been assigned to __________ 

Send Cindy an email at cwrich@eiu.edu 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.

Register!
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!
