Pedagogical Factory: How We Learn: Building an Educated City
July 28, 2007 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Adults Need Quality, Interesting, Creative, Critical Educational Opportunities Outside of the Job and the Academy. You are invited to join a discussion with a panel featuring representatives of local educational initiatives committed to cultural learning for adults in Chicago including: Mess Hall, Platypus, Free Geek, Chicagoland/Calumet Underground Railroad Efforts, Bronzeville Historical Society, Chicago Women’s Health Clinic, African Diaspora, and The Odyssey Project. These organizations and projects operate outside of traditional paradigms such as ESL/GED and professional skill development. We hope to highlight a range of important work happening in the city and encourage new participation in those efforts where it is appropriate. Additionally, by showcasing innovative cultural education for adults, we will gain a better sense what possibilities are currently available to adults seeking stimulation outside of traditional educational settings and better understand what this means for all of our efforts and our city. This public forum was made possible in part by the Illinois Humanities Council.
