Abstract:

Counter In response to the increasing failure to_successfully instruct_through traditional conferences and_learning environments, this comprehensive resource offers the first examination of, and guide to, the "unconference" movement._Dissecting the impact of internet "mob rule" on continuing education and training, this book shows how a new breed of digital solutions-including camps, "unconferences," and peer learning strategies-successfully put_the power of knowledge in the hands of_learners. In addition to providing a step-by-step approach to planning and leading a successful camp or "unconference," numerous case studies are presented, as well as interviews and examples of emerging education and training models for organizations, businesses, and community groups of all sizes.
