At the Center LEARN we have the mission to develop evidence-based educational practices and support innovative teaching and learning.
In order to capture and showcase some interesting examples, we have set up a series of lunch&LEARN sessions which portray projects from the community and their respective teaching and learning experiences.
The aim of lunch&LEARN sessions is to gather an audience interested in novel and effective learning and teaching approaches, and create a rich discussion around successful paradigms based on evidence.
As an informal event, lunch&LEARN allows participants to have their meals while gaining new insights about interesting pedagogical approaches, opening possibilities for knowledge sharing and further collaborations.
Our guests encompass a range of innovative teachers from EPFL as well as researchers from labs working on learning (CHILI, REACT, MOBOTS, ML4ED), service units (CEDE, CAPE), and educators with new visions for education at EPFL.
This event is open to EPFL teachers and teaching assistants interested in innovative teaching and learning and, regardless of whether you are curious or doubtful, active participation in lunch&LEARN discussions is very welcomed!
