The third annual Edcamp at Manhattanville College’s School of Education, held on September 9, 2017, proved to be an exciting and memorable day of professional development for nearly 120 registered attendees, who had their choice of 17 informative workshops spread out over three session times. A generous showing of Manhattanville SOE students, were joined by educators and administrators from Westchester, New York City, Connecticut, New Jersey and surrounding areas, who were all eager to listen, share, and grow together as teachers and learners. The day closed out with a "smack down," where attendees were invited at random to briefly share an educational take-away from the day, and win raffled prizes provided by some of our 19 generous EdcampMville sponsors.

Edcamp-style gatherings are organized and enjoyed by educators all over the country, and follow a unique “unconference” model, where the session schedule is actually designed the day of the conference, based on the interests of everyone in attendance.  Participants can attend any Edcamp and expect a free, organic, and participant-driven day of learning and sharing among educators.

Those who attended were able to get Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) credit to help fulfill the 100 clock hours of professional development required by New York State. The 2017 EdcampMville organizing team (Michele Haiken, Adam Schoenbart, Bancha Srikacha, and Ryan Fisk) look forward to hosting this event again in the future.
