An edcamp, a free, voluntary, and participant-driven model with sharing among teachers, is considered a breakthrough in the reform. Like workshops or conferences, Edcamps have been introduced for the sake of teachers’ profession. Organizing edcamps in the context of low numbers of participants has shown new challenging tendencies. Findings suggested that organizing more activities toward developing profession is necessary; yet more problem resolutions and foreseen effectiveness-oriented be included while implications from edcamps should be with specific applications for professional development.
