If you are anything like me, you have bookshelves full of great educational resources that have been sitting there for years. This year, at EdCampBCCC, we will have a table set up for a book swap. Bring an educational book, and take one left by someone else! Bring books that you have multiple copes of, books that you didn’t love but that someone else may, books that you won’t reread and that you don’t want back. This is an exchange, so books will not be returned to their owners. Also, we are limiting the swap to educational books - books used with students or professional development books.
Hopefully, many of you will leave with a new book that will inspire you!
If you have any questions, let us know in the comments or send us an email!

For those of you who are participating in your first EdCamp, here is a link to a video that gives you a great idea of what to expect. https://youtu.be/gr7teMAk-hA
An EdCamp is Participant driven
Sessions are decided on location by participants. There are no formal presentations, just conversations about a given topic.
An EdCamp is about Experience, not experts
Sessions are facilitated by anyone. Everyone is encouraged to speak up and share during the session. We acknowledge that we are all at a different place, with different understanding and experience, and we are all here to learn from each other.
An EdCamps uses the« Rule of two feet ».
If a session isn’t what you expected, feel free to move on to another one that better meets your needs.
On site information:
- Coffee, tea and muffins will be available from 8.15.
- There are water stations on site. to help reduce waste, please bring a reusable water bottle.
