 Thank you to everyone who attended one of the Hot Lunches during the 2013-2014 speaker series! We had another successful Hot Lunch series with very thought provoking speakers. We are currently in the process of planning our next round of speakers for the 2014-2015 series. Be on the lookout for more information as we get closer to the fall.

We are thrilled to introduce you to our Chief Learning Designer of ReSchool Colorado, Colleen Broderick. For the past two decades, Colleen has been involved in education across the country and internationally. She has been a teacher, instructional coach, school designer, and staff developer. Most recently, Colleen served as Director of Online Professional Development with Expeditionary Learning. Our very own Carmelita Galicia-Munoz recently spent some time with Colleen. During their time together, Carmelita learned about Colleen's background, experiences, and what she will be doing as Chief Learning Designer. We hope you enjoy reading Colleen's interview and learning more about her before she officially joins our team on March 24th.

When you run an organization named UnCollege, not everyone loves you. Especially Deans. Or people who, you know, teach college. But, if there’s any question I think people should be asking themselves, it’s this: why are students going to college? If it seems obvious why kids go, then you haven’t done your homework. And if parents are giving thousands upon thousands of dollars to an institution (re: business), there’s no reason why they shouldn’t do their homework.
