The first national (un)conference  
for school teachers 

We are building a community of responsible teachers!


What is EdCamp

EdCamp (un)conferences are conducted all over the world in a new format of discussions specifically
for teachers. 

meeting place 

Teachers get together 

to discuss the issues
they are most
concerned with.

Unique platform
for professional growth

Open exchange of teaching experience, cooperation 

and solution of shared tasks on the basis of the principle "Give – Get"
("Give, if you can –
Take, if you want").

Community of the best change agents

Efficient model for provoking changes in education 

on the level of each individual school, the region and the country as a whole –
we are strong together!

Who can take part 

in EdCamp Ukraine

A little history

Both novices in teaching and “veterans” 

of school education in Ukraine are invited
to participate. During the competitive selection
of participants neither the subject (s)he teaches nor the age of students is important.
The main criterion is motivation
for the development and willingness
to take responsibility for the future!


EdCamp was founded in Philadelphia (USA) 

in the summer of 2010. Since then,
over 550 events have been held in 15 countries, bringing together more than 25 000 teachers.
In Ukraine, this unique event will be held
for the first time. And we do hope that
the educational (un)conference will become
a sought-after and regular event.

Principles of EdCamp

The participants do not pay for entering EdCamp. 

It allows to guarantee
that different teachers
both from big cities
and far-off regions
will be able to participate. 

Free-of-charge basis

EdCamp is held
to teach each other 
in the democratic environment. The teachers will have an opportunity
to express their thoughts freely 
any outside influence. 


Open initiative

Anyone can host 

EdCamp, whether
a district administration
of education, an individual school, a public organization or an informal group
of teachers.

The program
of the (un)conference
is practically never prepared beforehand. In the morning of the first day the schedule and the topics
of communication are planned jointly with all
the participants. Due to this spontaneity the plan
of events will meet the needs of all the participants.

The program is defined
on the first day of holding 

Anyone who visits
EdCamp has the right
to have the floor.
All the teachers,
education administrators
and other participants deserve the opportunity
to share their experience
in a unifying atmosphere.

Each participant
can become the speaker 

The law
of “two legs” works

The participants
determine which of the sessions they should visit themselves. This provides 
an efficient way to "drop" 
the speeches
that are not relevant
to the teachers 
or presented
in an unattractive manner.
