The Unconference has become an event I look forward to every year. It is an opportunity for education researchers, across all specializations, to come together to share collective knowledge about a topic that impacts the entire field: open science. Researchers of all experience levels should feel welcome at this event; there is something for everyone! My understanding of open science has improved greatly since attending this event and I am excited to continue the learning this year!
