lunch and learn - a celebration

My personal preference is for "Lunch and Learn" format - as both a learning and sharing opportunity as well as a celebration. These get-togethers are professionally stimulating and a special treat to spend time with others in a collegial setting.

I'm having to retreat somewhat. We started off with Technology Enhanced Instruction which was shelved due to layoffs and retirements. I had the opportunity to restart several years later. I thought we needed an fresh coat of paint. The old title was so "yesterday" so we switched to calling it Technology Supported Learning and offered it as a credit course. And nothing happened. This just didn't get anyone excited.

So back we go - informal learning, Lunch and Learn format, celebrate getting together with professional colleagues and talking about Teaching, Learning and Technology.


  1. sounds like a great way to enhance and embrace peer feedback on and about TLT, in the design dept it usually happens over coffee.

  2. I agree with Tracey, this is a great concept - it is amazing the action points that come out of informal meetings with your colleagues.
