When the theme for Educon 2017 came across... 'how do you sustain innovation?' .... it got me thinking.
I started talking it over with David Jakes and we landed on 'ideas' as a critical source of sustaining innovation.
One of David's many fortes is on the subject of 'ideation.'
We decided to craft up a discussion at Educon on Building Better Ideas.
What are some common obstacles and ways to overcome them...
- when you're problem solving?
- when you are working with a team?
- when problems are complex?
Why do great ideas stumble?
Some ideas, well... suck ; ) Why do some horrible ideas gain traction?
These are timely questions for people in education. There's no shortage of things to do, initiatives, or needs.
How can you 'Build Better Ideas'?
Come with questions... Leave with an understanding of common pitfalls, strategies, creative ways to open up perspectives and... some pathways to build better ideas! That's our goal ; )
We're lined up open up a discussion on this Saturday, session 3 at Educon. Hope to see you there.
