Today's word is unconference, and Australia's first L2 unconference was held on Friday at Thomastown Library in northern Melbourne.
"An unconference focuses on who is going to be at the event and what they're interested in. No powerpoint presentations, no eminent (or not so eminent) papers, just conversations, active learning, discussion, fun! We provide the space, enough blank space to write on so that you can self organise, and a general theme for the day. The rest is up to you!"
The L2unconference was an initiative of Yarra-Plenty Regional Library in Melbourne, and in particular Chris Mackenzie. The unconference blog is at http://l2unconferencemelbourne.blogspot.com/index.html
