external image icon_question.pngWhat is Cal Educamp?

Many instructors, administrators and researchers are working to leverage technologies like social media, games, video-sharing and virtual worlds to increase student engagement and bring about deeper learning.

Participants (You!) will play a large role in the success of Cal Educamp. Together, we'll tackle challenges and issues that are decided by participants and are driven by the goals and themes of the day.

The event aims to:

  • Create an environment for peer learning, sharing, and knowledge transfer

  • Provide an opportunity for those working at all levels to share their experience and grow their expertise through a range of hands-on and conceptual sessions

  • Establish on and off campus connections among participants. Meet who else is doing this stuff!


Who is Cal Educamp for?


Instructors, practitioners, teacher trainers, students, anyone interested in learning and sharing experiences around education and technology.


Do other people do this?

Each educamp (or edcamp) is a little bit different, but the general idea is the same. Get people together to share their experiences around technology and education and have them learn from each other
