Teachers and educators from all over the area will have the opportunity to meet and share some of the newest and most innovative ideas in education this weekend.
Ohio County Schools will partner with West Liberty University to co-sponsor Ed-Camp Ohio Valley. The event will take place on Saturday morning at the University’s Highlands Center.
Organizers refer to it as an “un-conference” which means there are no set topics or content. All participants are encouraged to suggest subjects that interest them. A vote will then be taken by those in attendance to determine a final agenda.
“That’s what’s great about Edcamp. It’s not just one person standing and delivering this It is really just a compiling from teachers that are in the trenches everyday doing what they do, the amazing things. Then they get to share and talk about that,” said Susan Nolte, Human Resources Director for Ohio County Schools.
Anyone interested in attending can register online at EdCamp.com. Or they can just show up at the Highlands Center at 8:30 Saturday morning.
