imoot monthly unconference?
by Frank Fucile - Tuesday, 20 May 2014, 1:40 AM

Hi all

As most of us that attended imoot this year I am feeling a bit down now that the imoot is over.

Aside from the excellent planned presentations this year I made an effort to attend the "unconference" sessions and quite enjoyed meeting and getting to know folks 

I am wondering if we can take the momentum built up here at the imoot to see if there any folks interested in a "monthly" conference session - very informal no planning no structure required just a chance to have a chat and lets us know what we are all doing Moodle, online learning, or otherwise - food, fun, etc

I would be happy to facilitate the sessions as I am working quite closely with Fred and his team at Blindside with a "Sandbox" project for BBB here in the province of British Columbia.

Happy to get your feedback

Frank - I am also interested in monthly BBB "unconference" discussions about Moodle.  It appears as if Fred has already setup a BBB for iMoot participants

How will we keep up to date about dates and time of sessions?

PS: There is also a start of another discussion about the same concept in the Social Forum started by Karrie so that we do not duplicate processes

I guess I should have read Daves message before I responded.  Can you guys join us tonight and we can figure it out from there?
