GovCamp is an ‘un-conference’ which of course means that the contents of the day were decided by the attendees on the day. As you’ll see below, we had a fabulous range of topics for discussion.
We’ve captured the events of the day below for posterity, and also added links to the presentations and videos of many of the sessions
We have the presentations from the following sessions. If you facilitated a session and would like to add your slides or notes here then please let us know.
Find all the videos of the plenary and barcamp sessions in the main auditorium here.
However, it’s not a complete free for all! We do have some structure and some pre-planned sessions to get you thinking and hopefully trigger conversations, discussions and debate.
What would you like to hear about or facilitate a session on? If you’d like to host session at GovcampQLD feel free to suggest a topic now either by adding a comment to this thread or #tweeting your topic to @gov2qld; OR you can suggest a topic on the day at the morning’s Open Space session or by posting your topic to any remaining open slots on the agenda as the day unfolds.
It’s our event so we can all create the program. And if you find yourself in a session where you are not learning or contributing, why not move on.
To help you get to the sessions you want to get to on the day, you can access an up to date (and easier to read) version of this spreadsheet here.
Of course, the exciting bit about an un-conference is the sessions that you decide on, we’ve called these the ‘BarCamp Sessions’. Based on other events and previous meetings of the gov2qld community, topics for the BarCamp sessions will likely cover topics as diverse as:
- social media use in and by government
- online community engagement
- agency collaboration
- open data standards, copyright and use
- records management and gov2.0
- social media monitoring
- engaging with young people
- emergency management and agency resilience
- augmented reality
- mobile government
- legal issues of gov2.0 use of gaming in engagement
- anything else related to new ways of doing government and service delivery.
The following table will be updated live on the day so if you’re bringing your laptop, tablet and smart phone bookmark this page.
A PDF of the draft program (subject to minor tweaks) is also available here (pdf) – but we can’t guarantee it will stay up to date with the above!
… and of course, the place to continue the discussions and build your networks further will be the after party at The Joynt, very close to The Edge. There will be Pizzas (free – thanks to our sponsors) and Drinks (your shout I’m afraid!) and lots of relaxed networking and fun. See you there!
