We want our kids to be

Our main goal

We motivate educators:
  • to achieve goals,
  • to motivate each other and seek inspiration together,
  • to be happy and efficient in their teacher jobs and life in general.

To ensure this, we offer a wide range of tools: from the unique model of (un)conferences to already popular online tolokas (gatherings). From our American peers’ experience, we know that EdCamp has become one of the most popular professional development models in some U.S. states. The same holds true for Ukraine. We are sure even more formats will be added in the future.

National (un)Conferences

National (un)conferences by EdCamp Ukraine are our prevalent format of professional development for schoolteachers. Each event is held under the “law of two feet”: the participants themselves put together the program and schedule the sessions. After an event, they enjoy its “long tail effect”: follow-up discussions, joint projects, discovery of new ideas and formats for their own professional development.

Regional (un)Conferences

Regional (un)conferences or mini-EdCamps have a similar format but are held locally and organized by local educators. EdCamp Ukraine develops and provides them with comprehensive support both in tangible form and otherwise, called “EdCamp in a Box” program. The biggest value of these events is that they spread knowledge among teachers in the provinces. This is where white crows meet and network.

August (un)Conferences

For many decades Ukrainian teachers have been gathering at large pedagogical conferences in August, before a school year begins. They are held on national, regional, district, and school levels. Since 2017, we have been involved in organizing the largest one and turned it to an (un)conference – and now anyone willing can use this format as well. Every year, before educators start the school, we address them with the words of inspiration and support and share some useful tools with them.

Every year before the school year begins, teachers gather at pedagogical conferences:
  • national,
  • regional,
  • district,
  • school.

We hold online events and offer support

  • Circle of Mutual Support

    The Circle of Mutual Support is a Facebook group where educators ask for assistance and help others. You can receive a piece of advice or practical help with both professional and personal issues; the key issue is wording a distinct request or query. Offering support to those who ask for it is also welcomed. New members can only join through a recommendation of other participants, so the atmosphere of support and trust always prevails in the group.

    Join the Circle

    How do you join the group?

    Regularly
    No competitive selection

    Online Tolokas

    Online tolokas are online versions of (un)conferences that can be attended monthly from home and with no selection criteria. During tolokas, we talk to celebrities, education experts, government officials, and practicing educators about the most urgent questions of education, share our experiences and doubts, support our colleagues and students, and develop hard and soft skills. Much of a toloka meeting is discussions, i.e., Q&A sessions online.

    Join the tolokas
  • EdCamp Marathon

    EdCamp Marathon is very much like an online EdCamp but more intensive and gamified, based on teamwork rather than competition. Educators need it to receive support, get encouraged, and, of course, gain opportunities for professional development. Our EdCamp marathon “runners” diagnose their own needs, generate an individual learning path, communicate with mentors, with teaching practitioners, with each other, enjoying this communication and engaging in reflection.
