The eFest Open Space day
The Open Space day will be based on the "unconference" format that is developing widespread use in education and business collaboration events. An unconference is a conference where the content of the sessions is created and managed by the participants during the course of the event. It is a BYO session in which delegates can introduce a topic, discuss an opinion, or share a viewpoint about a subject.
The eLearning Forum will provide further guidance on the theme, special guest participants and the process for registering your area of interest. See the eFest Open Space conference day page for more details.
