In response to the increasing failure to successfully instruct through traditional conferences and learning environments, this comprehensive resource offers the first examination of, and guide to, the "unconference" movement. Dissecting the impact of internet "mob rule" on continuing education and training, this book shows how a new breed of digital solutions--including camps, "unconferences," and peer learning strategies--successfully put the power of knowledge in the hands of learners. In addition to providing a step-by-step approach to planning and leading a successful camp or "unconference," numerous case studies are presented, as well as interviews and examples of emerging education and training models for organizations, businesses, and community groups of all sizes.
