This three-day event combines professional development workshops and public presentations with intensive project team sessions and idea exchanges on educational innovations. With an emphasis on the interests of the participating groups, on intensive collaborative work, and on concrete outputs, gatherings draw upon event frameworks such as “unconferences,” BarCamp, and Startup Weekend. This Gathering will bring together a diverse and international mix of students, practitioners, researchers, developers, partner organizations, and others.
