The Idea

Many of us in education are now working from home. This can be challenging as we juggle family responsibilities, finding quiet space for each member of the family to work, as well as time together with family to work through issues and concerns in the middle of a pandemic.

We need time to talk with colleagues and friends. It helps us to realize that we are not alone with our challenges in these times as well as an opportunity to learn and teach with others.

Survey (new)

After many months, I decided to survey participants about #EduCoffee with an eye on publishing about our experiences and trying to explain what this really is. You can find that at https://bit.ly/educoffeesurvey

Videos (Spanish, English version “coming soon”)

The Plan

Every weekday at 11am and 4pm my local time, I will host a chat in Zoom. The plan for now is three days in English, two days in Spanish. Schedule and link below in the details.

Here in Guadalajara, we are currently on Central Standard Time until April 5th. See details at https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/mexico/guadalajara

So the schedule may shift locally for you depending on your current location and daylight saving time schedule.

The Details

The sessions will be held using Zoom (no recording will be made), please contact Ken via email kenbauer at tec.mx or via a direct message on Twitter, Facebook or wherever else you can find me online.

Schedule

With my change to my fall semester schedule which starts August 10th, I am shifting the twice daily schedule to 1pm and 6pm my local time (Mexican Central).

For your convenience, the current week’s schedule with widgets to convert to your local time zone are below.

  1. Ken, aunque solo he pasado dando una vista por aquí…sin más que leer títulos y algunos datos de los chat. Me siento invitada para llegar en otro momento. La idea de tomar un café…atrapa.
    Gracias, en otro momento….llevo mi café. Me gusta escuchar….observar.
    Ahh y olvidaba comentar el tipo de letra de los títulos y el tipo de escritura son fantásticas para mi.

    Saludos desde Guatemala.

  2. I feel like self-awareness and attentitiveness is key. Realizing the hospitality Joe was describing takes paying attention to both yourself and others and prioritizing the group experience rather than one’s own. In teaching, one can end up over-prioritizing the curriculum.
