The Unconference returns to Institute creating opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and creativity. At the start, the whole group will gather together and be guided through creating an agenda using a shared document through open space technology. The exact process is not important to understand in advance – the process will become clear as it happens. The important part is that all those gathered will have the opportunity to put conference sessions on the agenda.

The sessions convened will range from the formal to the informal. From the well thought out pre-prepared talk reflecting years of research and practice to the spur of the moment 'new idea' that would be fun to talk about. From the demonstration of a working tool to the whiteboarding of something completely new. In the end, YOU guide your own learning!
