The ninth annual Stanford IT Unconference will take place Thursday, December 12 at the School of Medicine’s Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge. The unconference is a day-long event geared toward building community among Stanford’s IT professionals. The event is sponsored by schools, departments, and administrative units across the university.
An unconference is a facilitated event where the attendees create the agenda and lead discussions around a theme.
The session topics are dynamic and decided at the event when participants propose topics they want to discuss and sign up for topics proposed by others. Participants follow the unconference Law of Two Feet: if you find yourself not learning or contributing at any time, it is your responsibility to use your two feet to find somewhere you are learning or contributing.
With this format, we hope to enable discussion topics that are relevant to now and the future.
