(There are a number of restaurants close to the university.)
2. The University of Windsor has provided edcampSWO with free use of their facilities, A/V equipment, wifi and custodial services. edcampSWO is providing all the coffee, doughnuts and bagels you can consume. Let us support this prospering university in a small way by paying the parking fee for their lot. At the University, park in lot Q next to the Education
Building (where event is being held) or in lot S across the street. Here is a parking lot map for the University of Windsor: http://web2.uwindsor.ca/pac/campusmap/pdfs/ParkingMap.pdf

4. At edcampSWO, the workshops are crowdsourced and decided when everyone arrives that day. As all learning is participant driven you are encouraged to consider facilitating learning, leading a conversation or sharing some work you are passionate about. AV equipment (projector and speakers) will be available for your use.
The fun does not end at the U, come join us at Rock Bottom on Sandwich St. http://www.rockbottom.ca at 4:30 for complimentary appetizers.
