FeinsteinCampRI is being held at Rhode Island College in Alger Hall on Friday, March 27, 2015 from 8 AM to 1:30PM. Come and join us for a great day of learning from each other! If you are unable to be with us for the entire morning, consider attending a session or two when you can.
The conference is organized using a hybrid format. The first sessions of the day are traditional conference style presentations where the presenters will be sharing their research. The second session begins the UnConference style sessions. The individuals listed have volunteered to host a session focusing on an area of research/interest to them. These sessions will be more free form in nature where the presenter and audience will be interacting. Audience members will be encouraged to bring their own expertise to bear and to offer additional insights from their own experience and/or raise questions they may have about the topic. Additional UnConference sessions will be determined by Feinstein Camp participants during breakfast and registration. You will find note cards on your table that you should use to write down topics or questions you want to discuss and/or skills or tools you would like to share with other conference attendees. Feinstein Camp organizers will pick up your note cards (1 topic / card, please) and organize them around common themes. The sessions and room assignments will then be projected onto the screen. These sessions are very free form and the agenda and discussion are determined by the participants– the skies the limit on what you can cover! Feel free to move between sessions if you think another session will be more beneficial to your needs.
