AM: Pitches & PM: Sessions
An Unconference asks participants to decide on the topics!
Faculty, staff and students: Join us on this journey into “serendipitous learning”! We invite you to prepare your pitch, post-it, promote it and be ready to facilitate a 40 minute session.
This Fall’s ETUG event invites you to explore a new format for our annual Fall Workshop – the Unconference! What is an Unconference? An Unconference is where the participants decide on the program topics . Topics can be decided in advance (posted on the web), or spontaneously generated, and pitched at the workshop. Everyone then attends the sessions that interest them. (Want to learn more about this daring and unusual workshop format? Check out these unconference resources or this Unconference 101 video.)
The pitch is intended to highlight your area of interest so others who are like-minded can plan to attend your session. If you would like to begin generating interest, start the conversation, or find partners with like interests, we have provided a Google document where you may post your ideas. Also if you have an idea and want to connect with someone you can do so in the “ETUG Let’s Talk” space in SCoPE. Deadline: There isn’t one – be ready to pitch your idea the morning of the event. Limit – 1 slide per pitch.
