BB&N Faculty & Staff EdCamp is Well Received

On October 9th the faculty and staff participated in an "EdCamp" which is a participant-driven model of professional development. Members of the faculty and staff offered a variety of sessions for colleagues to attend. The tech department hosted several sessions including this one on fun favorite apps, and others on project-based learning and virtual reality.

There were also sessions on meditation, woodworking, clay, and even a drum circle hosted by BB&N's own Greg Fernandes.

This was the third time that this style of professional development was run at BB&N, following on the heels of edcamps run in 2015 and 2016. The survey data continues to indicate widespread satisfaction with this choice-based, participant-driven approach to PD.
