Gathering my tweets from two days of thought-provoking presentations at #InsideOutsideNYU hosted at @NYUTandon and @NYUmakerspace…

I attended a great Inside/Outside symposium this week at NYU Tandon. Day 1 focused on INSIDE uses for 3D design and 3D printing technologies pertaining to the medical community. Day 2 focused on OUTSIDE uses for 3D designing and printing, like those found in architecture and building design. Besides my tweets (which I embedded below), you can explore the #InsideOutsideNYU hashtag on Twitter.

My notes from #Learning2Teach hosted by @SFPC & @NYUtandon’s Integrated Digital Media and organized by @brain & @tchoi8.

I spent today at Learning to Teach hosted by School for Poetic Computing and NYU‘s Integrated Digital Media and organized by: Taeyoon Choi and Tega Brain. Here’s a description from the conference’s website:

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 Daniel Shiffman, Naomi Clark, Brad Garton. The keynote speakers will share their experiences teaching computer programming 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.

Date: January 20th, 2018 (10am ~ 5pm)
Venue: Integrated Digital Media, NYU, 8th floor of 2 Metrotech Center. Brooklyn.
Organizers:School for Poetic Computation (SFPC), Processing Foundation and Integrated Digital Media, NYU (IDM).

Here are my notes (via my tweets) from the day:
