English Language Fellow Eric Wenninger helped host the first “EdCamp” in Vietnam. This conference took place at the University of Languages and International Studies in Hanoi. Over 50 English teachers and educators were in attendance in this innovative conference.

Rather than having an agenda already set up for the conference, EdCamps focus heavily on input from the participants. The goal is to create a day of professional development that allows participants to get the most out of it. Attendees came prepared with questions and teaching practices they wanted to share. In addition facilitators led group discussions in breakout sessions at the conference.

Attendees collaborated with fellow educators to brainstorm solutions to common education problems. This being the first EdCamp in Vietnam, participants responded positively and enjoyed learning from their colleagues. Participants were able to enjoy a more interactive approach to learning and professional development.
