Abstract:

You may have heard of an unbirthday, a term coined by Lewis Carroll in “Through the Looking-Glass”, but now we have the unconference. This is when a group of people gather together without an agenda to discuss a topic, solve a problem or learn a new skill. The idea of an unconference is based on Open Space Technology and Michelle Boule shows how the flexibility of this approach can have unexpected and valuable results.
