9:56 PMEdCampNJ

This past Saturday, November 18th, the 10th annual EdCampNJ was held at New Brunswick High School. Our free unconference brought together passionate educators from across New Jersey for a day of teacher-led professional development. Based on feedback, the 2023 edition was another major success.

As attendees entered New Brunswick High School on Saturday morning, anticipation and excitement were palpable. Breakfast and an opening message from the EdCampNJ team set the stage for a day filled with inspiration and peer learning. Teachers then proposed and created sessions happening in real-time, ensuring topics were timely and relevant. Over 36 sessions were held throughout the morning, on everything from social-emotional learning to utilizing AI in classrooms.

During sessions, attendees drove the conversations, shared ideas and resources, and made connections. As one 2023 participant put it, "The ability to speak freely with other teachers and gain ideas and advice is so valuable." Others appreciated the "game-changing" AI discussions and learning immediate applications for their classrooms. The crowdsourced format means educators walk away with strategies they can implement right away.

The 2023 event built on EdCampNJ's mission to facilitate authentic teacher-led PD. One of the most meaningful aspects is connecting with fellow passionate educators across New Jersey. Whether in sessions, during networking breaks, or at lunch, this year's event fostered meaningful relationships. Attendees always leave inspired by the community of teachers united in pursuing impactful learning.

Based on glowing survey feedback, EdCampNJ 2023 was an overwhelming success. Almost 100% of respondents said the event was well-organized and 94% rated the impact on their professional development as high. EdCampNJ continues to set the standard for teacher-powered, relevant PD that equips educators to meet the opportunities and challenges of today's landscape.
