Edcamp West Chester 2020
December 14 20198:30 am - 1:00 pm
Calling all educators from Westchester, NYC, CT, LI, NJ, and beyond - Join us for our FIFTH annual #edcampWESTCHESTER on Saturday 12/14/19 inside the historic Reid Castle at Manhattanville College!
This exciting day of learning, sharing and professional development kicks off at 8:30am with breakfast and the session board / scheduling (more on that further down). Three 50-minute sessions follow, with discussion topics developed the morning of the Edcamp. We'll close out the day around 1:00pm with a debrief, "smack down," and some raffle prizes!

What is an “Edcamp” exactly?
Edcamp-style gatherings follow an “unconference” model, so you can expect a free, organic, and participant-driven day of learning and sharing among educators. The day's session schedule will be developed on the fly, based on the interests of everyone in attendance. To learn more about Edcamps and find other free and awesome professional development opportunities, visit edcamp.org or TheEduCal.com (co-created by one of our very own #EdcampWESTCHESTER co-founders!).
Where’s the session schedule?
Good question! Part of the Edcamp magic (and what makes this such a unique and organic day) is that the schedule is actually made up on the day of the Edcamp (so, Saturday 12/14 for ours), based on the interests of everyone in attendance. If you have a topic you’d like to share, or a discussion you want to facilitate, head over to our session board whiteboard, grab a sticky note, and pick a room and time!
How do I get there?
Set your GPS for Manhattanville College, (2900 Purchase Street, Purchase NY 10577). Once you arrive, tell our campus safety staff you're headed to the Reid Castle and turn right after you enter the traffic circle. Park your car in one of the lower lots and walk up the hill to the Reid Castle - we'll see you inside!
