Learning to Teach is a day-long conference for educators teaching computation in creative fields like art, design or digital humanities departments. Led by Taeyoon Choi (SFPC) and Tega Brain (NYU), the conference will feature keynotes by leading educators including Elise Co (Art Center), Rhazes Spell (UCLA) and Lauren Gardner (SFPC). The keynote speakers will share their experiences teaching computer programming, design, game and related topics, their strategies for blending critical thinking, engineering, and inspiring creativity in a teaching environment. This year’s program will include a participatory session for attendees to observe the pedagogical strategies of their peers and develop teaching approaches of their own. Join us to explore the intersection of pedagogy and creative practice, and get ready for the year ahead. Learning to Teach is organized in partnership with the Processing Foundation. Make sure to check out the Processing Community Day that's happening January 19, 2019
