What is the format of this unconference?

 

LITACamp has no pre-determined session topics or presenters, other than the keynote sessions. You, the participants, create and lead most of the sessions! You determine the Topics and format of your session, sign up for a time slot, and pitch your session idea to the group. The exact Schedule will be created as we go. The purpose of this format is to encourage collaboration, interaction, discussion, and real-time innovation.

 

Read some tips from the InfoCamp Seattle 2008 blog on giving un-conference presentations.

 

What kinds of sessions can I create?

 

You can be as creative as you like with your session content and format. For instance, you could...

 

  • gather people to debate a topic,
  • solicit feedback on a design,
  • demo a half-baked product,
  • organize a panel,
  • present research findings,
  • discuss a problem, or
  • brainstorm an idea.

 

More details about the sessions?

 

You will have access to white boards, chalk boards, flip charts, markers, projectors, and wireless internet. Each session time slot will be 45 minutes long. The rooms you'll be in will vary - some large, some small, etc.

 

What if I don't have an idea for a session?

 

Attend anyway! You're sure to have an opinion or question about what's being presented, so you can participate by joining in the discussion. And who knows - maybe the discussions will spark an idea that you want to share or present as the weekend goes on!

 

Will there be wireless internet?

 

Yes.

 

Will there be food and drink at LITACamp?

 

Yes.  See the Schedule.

 

What should I bring to LITACamp?

 

There's no need to bring anything specific. 

 

You may want to consider bringing a laptop, camera, a reusable/travel coffee mug, and business cards. And anything you need for a session you might lead!
