In the morning, you will be introduced to our mindset of applied creativity through a pedagogy of Ideation, Disruption and A-ha. You will also explore our Ikigai+ purpose-based advising and mentorship model, a vehicle for academic intentionality, creative and experiential exploration and purpose-based discernment. The model received a Global Honorable Mention Award in OpenIDEO’s Future of Higher Education Challenge, and we are now working in partnership with the U.S. Board of Education Technology Office. Warning: smiles, fun and playful experiences are expected!

The Learning Labs will be followed by a special afternoon experience of critical, creative and innovative deliverables as part of the University of Dayton's Collaboration Accelerator 3.0 program. Each summer, we seek twelve of the most engaged and creative UD students from different academic areas of study, bringing them together to find creative 'solutions' to real-world challenges posed by a consortium of community partners.

Learning Labs will be tailored for K-12 educators, but anyone is welcome to attend. The Summit is free, but registration is required for the Learning Labs. Light refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
