For sixteen years, the Wake Forest Department of Education hosted the Emerging Teacher Leaders Network (ETLN) Conference, which invited alumni to return to Wake Forest University once a year for its annual conference.
In 2020, the department transitioned from ETLN to the Wake Education Network, which serves to support and connect Wake Forest students and alumni through professional development, collaborative opportunities, and networking.
Next year’s annual alumni gathering will take place as part of edCamp336, a morning of professional learning hosted by the Department of Education in collaboration with Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. edCamp336 is open to all local teachers as well as Wake Forest students and alumni. This “unconference” has been cancelled in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic but will return in 2022.
A lunch for Wake Forest Department of Education students, alumni, faculty, and staff immediately follows edCamp336.
