A Pharmacy Unconference?

06/02/2009

I happen to see the below on Smarterware.org.  The concept of an unconference is very interesting.  Has it been tried in pharmacy before?   There is the unSummit about how to grow leaches more productively (opps, sorry) but the concept of a conference where the attendees are also the speakers is very interesting.  Maybe pharmacists, in general, are too introverted? Where would this work?  Perhaps a pharmacy informatics unconference as part of another event?

Attended my very first BarCamp here in San Diego this weekend, and came away from it super-impressed. BarCamp is a free, self-organizing unconference where the attendees are also the speakers. The schedule isn’t set till the conference starts. At that point, everyone slaps a big Post-It note describing their session on a board in the time slot and room they want to talk in and away it all goes.
