I&E 290-02: Innovators Workshop

Spring 2020

Instructor: Megan Kelly Deyncourt

Through this exploratory course, students build an innovation mindset by expanding their self-awareness and enhancing their teamwork, communication and problem-solving skills.

As the course unfolds, students learn about their biases, strengths and values; find ways to communicate with and trust others on a team working toward a common mission; observe and anticipate the needs of others; and develop ways to influence others through creative storytelling and systematic problem-solving. Students also grapple with ethical questions and challenging problems that cannot be solved without establishing a realistic cultural empathy.

Class sessions involve interactive exercises that apply theory to practice, self- and group assessments, dynamic guest speakers and applied creative projects.
