Back to School Meetup @ Indigo

Yes!  We’re on for having another meet & greet networking session hosted by yours truly.

Tuesday, August 23, 2016
6:00 PM

Indigo @ 12 West
430 SW 13th Avenue, Portland, OR

 

There’s many new faces that have joined the group and it’s time we get to know each other a bit more.

To make the most of the time together, we’ll start with a slightly structured networking session. What is structured about it, you ask?  Here’s the quick summary:

We’ll start with a quick meet & greet.  You’ll have a chance to meet nearly everyone one-on-one, briefly, before moving onto making another quick connection with another.

Then, in the second half of the meetup, we’ll break up into smaller group chats based on shared interests and/or encourage folks to further their conversations with the folks they’ve found a shared interest in during the initial meet-greet.

Bring your business cards (or post-its and a pen) and be ready to meet and reacquaint yourself with peers working at the intersection of education and technology.

Location Details

Indigo is the building with the wind turbines on top, right by Civic Stadium. There is a public parking lot under the building accessible from SW 12th Avenue.

From the lobby, tell the concierge you are with the PDXedTech Meetup (or Stacy Hawthorne if they look confused) and they will send you to the correct location.

Alternative Educational Pathways: The future of education in adult learning

The world is changing rapidly and technology has become ubiquitous to our everyday lives. Higher education and adult learning are changing too. Experiments in project-based learning, design thinking, hybrid pedagogy, and educational communities are already underway – but where will they lead us? And what does this mean for the future of adult learning and higher education?

Join us at our next meetup to dive into these topics! Hear from a variety of perspectives about what this changing landscape of education looks like locally and elsewhere. Sharing their perspectives are:

• Douglas Tsoi, Portland Underground Grad School

• Susan Adams, Oregon Health and Sciences University

• Dave McFarland, Treehouse

Beth Schechter will moderate the panel and discussion.
