FARMINGTON The University of Maine at Farmington and Western Maine K-12 school districts are collaborating to present their second annual Western Maine EdCamp. This professional development opportunity is offered to empower educators of all kinds to share their vision for high quality teaching and learning.

EdCampWME is free and open to the public and will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Mt. Blue High School, in Farmington, Saturday, Feb. 6 (Feb. 7 snow date.)

This year's EdCamp 'un-conference' is organized by UMF College of Education faculty members and teachers from Mt. Blue, Mountain Valley, Wells and Greeley high schools. The flexible schedule of professional development sessions are determined by the interests of the participants and can include discussions, demonstrations, teaching ideas, etc. on any educational topic.

'The goal of this event is to energize educators of all kinds through a positive sharing of creative ideas,' said Johanna Prince, director of the UMF graduate program in education. 'Last year's EdCamp brought together more than 80 participants, and we look forward to another successful gathering.'

K-12 teachers and administrators, pre-service teachers, parents, homeschoolers and any interested educators are welcome to attend. Registration is recommended and can be completed online.
