EDUCamp 2010 will be held on March 18th, 2010.


Educamp 2010 is a day of thinking AND doing, focusing on examining current trends in teaching and learning in the "Thinking" sessions and as well as offering compatible hands-on sessions using technology tools in the “Doing” sessions! This year we are focusing on a theme of sustainability education (from http://www.walkingthetalk.bc.ca/). Sustainability Education is one of the most critical investments we can make for our future. It is a transformative, learner-centred model that promotes action and reflection in challenging and dynamic ways. At the 2010 Educamp, we focus on 5 sustainability education streams: Community Service Learning, Lifetime Learning (never stop discovering), Systems Thinking (nothing exists in isolation), Personal Responsibility (you are your brothers’ keeper), and Hands-on Experiential Learning. Educamp 2010 is a totally FREE event for the UBC Community and is for anyone involved in learning and teaching, as well as those interested in how technology is supporting this rapidly evolving area.
