"Mob Rule Learning is an eye-opening look at how and why we learn, and is absolutely the seminal text on Unconferencing."

—J. P. Porcaro, founder, 8bitlibrary.com
and National Library Unconference Day

This is the first comprehensive book about the unconference movement. Author, blogger, and Library Journal Mover & Shaker Michelle Boule explains why traditional conferences and learning environments increasingly fail to meet the needs of professionals. She looks at the impact of "internet mob rule" on continuing education and training, and shows how an array of new solutions—including camps, unconferences, and peer learning strategies—are putting the power of knowledge back in the hands of those who need it most.

In addition to providing a step-by-step approach to planning a camp or unconference, Mob Rule Learning features numerous case studies, interviews, and examples of emerging education and training models for small and large organizations, businesses, and community groups.

"Mob Rule Learning explores the unconference phenomenon and offers a roadmap for self-organizing learning communities. ... an important contribution."

—Mark Kuznicki, co-organizer, 
TransitCamp, ChangeCamp

"Michelle Boule has done a great job of describing the benefits and challenges of unconferences, and how to successfully run one. But she doesn't stop there—she extends the unconference idea into classrooms and organizations for corporate and student learning opportunities, too. Definitely a must-read!"

—David Lee King, author,
Designing the Digital Experience

"The world around our students has changed, but teaching methods have not kept pace. Boule provides impetus for rethinking the issues and practical ideas for addressing the opportunities."

—Cole W. Camplese, senior director, 
Teaching and Learning with Technology, Penn State
