Innovation is everyone’s responsibility (E/SI)

Location: 511 ABC
Track: Hacking Education

This presentation will provide a picture of how one institution brought together a small group of diverse, passionate personnel for an intense experience to help address the question of how an institution can grow the culture of academic innovation. This group embarked on an innovative exploratory journey with the permission to be as creative as possible but with an eye for sustainability. Ultimately, we chose two areas to focus on: building microcredentials and creating an Innovation Hub. We will share our approach to engagement, collaboration, and ultimately how we are enacting the work of the group moving forward. We will also share our rationale for the two areas of innovation, lessons learned (so far!) and honest reflections. Participants will be asked to share ideas about our next steps and/or share their own stories of creating a culture of innovation and any insights.
