Café Pedagogique Denver
5:00-6:30pm at Prima Ristorante (upstairs), Hotel Teatro
Café Pédagogique is an informal meeting for conversation surrounding teaching and learning. In the Café Ped, people come together in a friendly and relaxed environment and hear informal presentations on interesting educational topics, each led by someone who cares (loves, hates) deeply about it. After each presentation there are 15-20 minutes or so of questions and answers and general discussion. For more information, contact Doris Kimbrough (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Bud Talbot (email@example.com).
