You’re Invited

Hello Everyone,

At the eLCC conference, we had Beyond Culturally Relevant Pedagogy and Beyond Dominant Tech Culture sessions where we discussed social justice and education.

If you would like to continue that conversation especially with students, here’s an invitation from UCD education students on the topic of social justice.

Dear Community Members,

Please join us next Wednesday, May 8th for The UnSettled States of whiteness. This event is a series of UCD Educational Foundation 4001/5001 student panels on racism, racial privilege, white supremacy and colorblind racism. These series of panels will identify and critically analyze whiteness to understand racial implications in everyday society. Participants will start to learn a vocabulary of how to talk about whiteness and what to do to challenge racism.

WHEN: Wednesday, May 8th
Time: 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Where: CU Denver Student Commons Building 2600 (2nd floor)

Biomimicry Day: Interdisciplinary Design

Biomimicry Day: Interdisciplinary Design

Come join educators on Friday April 12 from 10 am to 2:30 pm in L200 College Hill Library at the Westminster Campus on Front Range Community College (FRCC).

Biomimicry Day at FRCC is an event for curious educators to take an interdisciplinary approach to introducing our students to the emerging field of biomimicry and viewing biological phenomena from a new perspective. Biomimicry (from bios meaning life and mimesis meaning to imitate) is a new discipline that studies nature’s best ideas and then imitates these designs and processes to solve human problems ranging from medicines to traffic to economy to sustainable urban growth. (Sustainability Leaders Network, n.d.)

9th Annual Regis University Teaching and Learning with Technology Fair

Hello, fellow eLCCers,

All eLCCers are invited to the 9th Annual Regis University Teaching and Learning with Technology Fair, being held March 13th from 10-2 in the Mountain View Room of Peter Claver Hall. For those having attended in past years, this is the same place as before.

The Fair highlights the variety of learning technologies being used to enhance teaching and learning in Regis campus-based and online classrooms. All Fair presenters are Regis University faculty and staff who freely share their classroom technology solutions. Many of those presenting are winners of Teaching and Learning with Technology Micro-grants.

The TLTF format is similar to a vendor fair, with display areas set up for each presenter. Presenters demonstrate their learning technology while answering questions on its use in the classroom. Last year’s event featured faculty and staff from all five colleges as well as the Library, ITS, and eLearning Consortium of Colorado!

Check out the archive of past fairs, including video interviews with several eLCC attendees, by heading over to the LT Fair website. Plenty of pizza for all and lots of vendor handouts and freebies.

Hope you can join us. –Jeff
