Details

Join us for a meetup in partnership with UT education researchers Joan Hughes, Ph.D. and Adam Papendieck, Ph.D. During this meetup we will learn about who our stakeholders are in the EdTech community, and how we can draw on lessons for a broader and deeper educational impact.

This meetup will challenge participants to expand their conceptions of innovation in education and innovators for education and to strengthen Austin's EdTech communities by designing for diversity. Joan and Adam will highlight lessons from recent research they carried out with EdTech Austin to catalyze an interactive discussion and series of breakout sessions, with the goal of linking people, ideas, and opportunities to enhance EdTech impact through diversity.

We will take a look at some examples of diverse engagement that can be built through this network, and talk about how an upcoming 'Slow Pitch' event can help our EdTech community. Participate in some design challenge breakout sessions and find ways we can leverage the EdTech Austin network for impact and change.

As always there will be food and local beer! See y'all soon!
