What is an Unconference?
The ALA definition: “An unconference is a participant-guided experience that actually brings the unstructured conversations people usually have between conference sessions into the conference itself. Unlike most conferences where a group of leaders determine what will be discussed, the participants make those decisions at an unconference, and usually either on the day of the unconference or shortly before.”
