This program is for those who wish to engage in interactivity and communication in a way to achieve high levels of collaboration that leverages the strengths of each group member to achieve what would be difficult or near impossible as individuals. This program is for those wishing to create safe learning and professional environments to enable the development of brave environments conducive to innovation.
The Collaborative Creativity for Social Innovation & Strategic Design program is designed for educators from early childhood to post-secondary levels, and professionals from across the discipline spectrum who wish to develop comprehensive, strategic design practice tactics and strategies to affect positive, innovative, collaborative change across a wide range of real-world contexts. This is accomplished through the establishment of a collaborative culture for creativity that is carried throughout the program to support the strategic design work of all participants. Each program participant will be engaging in a highly supportive and interactive online regional, national and international community of collaboration and creativity throughout the program through the development of collaborative interest networks, knowledge networks, and innovation networks to support the growth and development of their own work as well as the work of others in the cohort.
