PBS and Edcamp today announced a national partnership that aims to create opportunities for early childhood educators across the country to engage in peer-to-peer learning. The initiative will kick off with a series of PBS Edcamp events produced in partnership with PBS stations, and will use Edcamp’s “unconference” professional development model, in which teachers lead their own learning experiences. 

The free program will be open to those who work in various learning environments, including informal and childcare settings. Participants propose topics they want to discuss or learn more about, build the agenda and then choose sessions to attend based on their interests and experiences. 

The PBS Edcamp partnership will begin with a series of PBS Edcamp pilots in 10 markets in partnership with PBS member stations.
