Café Pédagogique 2014


The Café will be held in the Community House at the national historic landmark Chatauqua in the Grand Assembly Room. Please sign up for this optional COLTT after-hours event when you register. Space is limited so sign up early to secure your spot.


The cost is $24.00 and includes the food service. Separate cash bar available.We strongly encourage car-pooling as on-site parking is very limited. Click here to register. 



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. Your opinion is as valid as anyone else’s, and we really want to hear what you have to say.


Joining us as speakers at the Café is Deborah Keyek-Franssen, who with a nod to Douglas Adams and in the this-really-gets-my-goat category, she will wax eloquent (likely with marginal success, given it will be the end of the first day of COLTT) about the rhetorical and other pitfalls of positing that online education is the answer to life, the universe and everything in a presentation titled ‘Online Education = 42?", David Lyons from CU Online talking about  "The Myth of the Face-to-Face Classroom", and  Kevin Zeiler from Metro State University conducting a discussion concerning the promotion and popularity of online education as it applies to ethical behavior titled “You mean I have to do my own work?”.
