Event Details

Join us in Black Mountain, North Carolina, for the first-ever Learning Revolution Deep Dive.  

Preconference - Saturday and Sunday, May 10 - 11, with check-in available the afternoon of May 9th. There will be a variety of community or local activities to pursue, including hiking, site-seeing, or just relaxing. Please visit the website for details.

Deep Dive - The focused event will take place from Monday morning, May 12th through noon on Wednesday, May 14th (those not attending the pre-conference can check in Sunday afternoon, May 11th). We will follow the "Open Space Technology" or barcamp/unconference style. This involves the establishing of discussion topics (all focused on learning) at the start, and then scheduling those in during the event with lots of time for deep conversation. Our intent is to bring together those from varied learning settings into a larger context for discussion.

Film FestivalThe Education Film Festival associated with Deep Dive Black Mountain will be held each evening May 9 - 13  in the historic theater or, if weather permits, outside. The focus of this inaugural event will be several films on alternative or non-traditional education. The film directors are being invited to attend the event or to come in live through video-conferencing to discuss the film and take questions as well.

Room Costs - Attendees are not required to stay at the facility, but event location is slightly remote and these rooms much cheaper than other local alternatives. Costs are not per person, but per room.

  • Hotel-style rooms: $70/night, accommodates two people*. Private bath, two beds (1 single, 1 double), no in-room TV and very simple
  • Family rooms: email admin@web20labs.com for details.

*We are not going to have any formal process for arranging room sharing, but you are welcome to do so through the discussion forum in the group for attendees.

Food CostsThe meal service provided by Blue Ridge Assembly is good, plentiful, regular cuisine, and while there are vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free components to the meals, the facility does not offer specialty food options. However, the residential hall does have a full commercial kitchen available for guest use.

  • Pre-conference: Sat. Breakfast-Sun Lunch = $60 per adult or $30 per child
  • Deep Dive: Sun. Supper - Wed. Breakfast = $100 per adult or $50 per child

Example: Adult guest attending the pre-conference and Deep Dive would pay $160 to have three meals a day for five days.

Cancellation Policy - All event costs will be refundable minus a 6.5% processing fee until May 3rd. After May 3rd we cannot guarantee a refund of your payment.

Child CareChild care and youth activities are available independently and at a small fee from the Agile Learning team at The Mosaic School on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Learn more and sign up here.
