Café Pédagogique is a monthly informal meeting for conversation and discussion of teaching and learning by the students, staff, faculty and friends of the Anschutz Medical Campus. The Café Ped is based on the Café Scientifique, which is based on the French Café Philosophique. In the Café Ped, which originated at the COLTT Conference in Boulder 3 years ago and is the first such program in the world, people come together in a friendly and relaxed environment later in the day and hear three informal presentations on interesting educational topics, each led by someone who cares (loves, hates) deeply about it. After each presentation there are about 20 minutes or so of questions and answers and general discussion. There is plenty of opportunity for everyone to participate, and we welcome questions which begin “This might be a stupid question, but...” These questions are invariably not stupid. Your opinion is as valid as anyone else's, and we'd really like to hear from you.
Our next meeting of the 2013-14 Academic Year will be:
Speakers & Topics: Lisa Lee, PhD, will consider, “On the Internet nobody knows you’re a dog”—Can there be gender and age bias in online education? And
Matthew Taylor, MD, PhD, will text, My peeps won’t stop texting :-(0) !! Texting in my classroom: GR8 tech or OMG? [An open discussion of how smartphone texting impacts learning environments. We ENCOURAGE you to bring your smartphone-LOL]
Date: 10 October
Time: 4:30 - 6 pm
Location: ED2 North, room 1206- Please note changed location
