Café Pédagogique

Café Pédagogique 2013


Location: To Be Announced


Café Pédagogique is an optional evening event for conference attendees and others to gather in a relaxed setting for informal presentation and discussion of topics relating to education. Pre-registration is required, as there are limited seats available. Event details will be announced soon.


The world’s possibly original Café Pédagogique is a lively discussion of teaching and learning in a friendly and relaxed environment enhanced by the presence of food and access to beverages of your choice. It was invented for the COLTT conference in 2008 and has been held each year during the conference in Boulder. It is based on the internationally popular Café Scientifique that is similarly relaxed and participatory.


During the Café, people come together to hear three perspectives on interesting educational topics, each led by someone who is passionate about it. These folks only get 5 minutes to talk about the topic, and then there are about 20 minutes of questions and answers and general discussion. There is plenty of opportunity for everyone to participate, and we welcome questions that begin with “This might be a stupid question, but...”. These questions are invariably not stupid. Your opinion is as valid as anyone else’s, and we really want to hear what you have to say.


There will be a fee to attend the Café Ped-cost details coming soon.


Café Pédagogique 2012:


Last year, attendees met at the fabulous Ladisio restaurant where great food and intriguing conversations were enjoyed. David Thomas shared his knowledge about educational heresies, Kae Novak discussed MOOCs, and Andrew Bonham offered his thoughts on who should be the drivers of change in technology in education. 


Thank you to the COLTT 2012 Café Pédagogique sponsor, ATLAS!
