Campus Conversations: (IAN) in Action

Add to Calendar 09/18/2015 12:20:0009/18/2015 13:20:0015Campus Conversations: (IAN) in ActionFacilitators: Brian LaDuca (ArtStreet), Adrienne Ausdenmoore (ArtStreet), Kevin Hallinan (School of Engineering), Ken Bloemer (School of Engineering), Peter Benkendorf (Collaboratory), Nick Schleuter (SBA student), Josie O’Connell (BIO student), Matt Geraci (HSS student) Attendees will: 1. Gain insight of the value and application of divergent collaborative innovative processes. 2. Gain insight of the IAN process and its strength in dislocating learners, opening them up to growth which cannot be attained without IAN’s dislocating elements. 3. Gain insight into the value of student engagement in parallel technical (professional) and community projects. In the summer of 2015, a team of faculty from ArtStreet and the School of Engineering, and external partners including a community connector and an Air Force Research Labs Innovation guru, established a summer-long, multi-disciplinary innovation experience. With funding from the Air Force Research Labs and UD, 13 students (four from engineering, five from business, one from the sciences, two from the Arts, and one from communication) were assembled for two purposes – to develop a project that would strengthen the greater Dayton community and to develop a business from emerging sensor technology research at the Air Force research lab. The IAN process was used to frame the innovation, with injection of traditional innovation processes from the engineering world. This process included the following steps: inclusive team building; ideation; disruption; and “A-ha”; aimed to develop in students critical perspective, creative confidence, and an ability to develop innovative solutions to real projects. While the goal of the summer was to demonstrate that divergent collaboration and the IAN process might yield different kinds of solutions, more important to UD is the education realized by students. This session will document this learning.ArtStreet Creator Space Studio E Susan Brownsbrown4@udayton.eduNo09/18/2015
