Event description
Join MetroLab Network to talk about how we might use our shift in teaching and learning to support COVID-19 efforts locally and globally.

About this Event

We’re living in a time of high uncertainty. As we shift and adjust our operations to remote teaching and learning to increase our and others’ safety regarding COVID-19, we find ourselves also with the opportunity to shift the focus of the classes we teach. For some, this shift might reorient final projects to produce deliverables that address local needs. For others, this shift might mean introducing topics in application, as they dovetail with current events. From molecular biology to operations management to inclusive economies, professors and students alike might be able to use classroom time to contribute to new thinking and new ideas that help us now and in the near future. Join MetroLab Network for a Kitchen Table Talk--a small, informal discussion (maybe even from your own kitchen table). During this Kitchen Table Talk, we will share:

  • examples of what this shift in practice looks like,
  • tips on how to accomplish such a shift in a short period of time,
  • thoughts on what our institutions might provide to support this work now and in the future, and
  • other thoughts and considerations on what it means to teach and learn during COVID-19.

Those who are teaching classes and those who support folks teaching are encouraged to attend--all are welcome!

This event is limited to a maximum of 10 participants. There is also a waitlist for those who might not make the first 10.

Stay tuned for more Kitchen Table Talks! Our next topic: Use of City Data in Crisis Response.
