Schedule, Location, What to Bring

Because this is an Unconference, we will create the agenda during the first session of the day. Below is an outline of the schedule. 

Location

Sessions will take place in Bruininks Hall, 512A (formerly STSS). You can gather around tables or whiteboards, and we'll provide markers, post-it notes and paper. You can meet elsewhere in the building, or outside--we'll ask you to tell us where so we can add it the information to the schedule. 


What to bring

It might be easier to use a laptop instead of a tablet, as you'll likely use it for writing and taking notes. Please bring any materials that you need to lead a session. (We might be able to help you with that, so please contact us if you have questions. Send an email to Cristina Lopez, clopez@umn.edu


Schedule

The schedule below is an outline we'll fill in as our first order of business. Depending on the number of participants and interest in topics and activities, we can adjust the number of sessions.
