Speed Innovating — may be the first step for change

The Speed Innovating session was wonderful to watch. A great way to share the tip of the iceberg for many great ideas. Attendees signed up to visit three tables, at each table the presenter covered their big idea/ project in 10 minutes. Obviously, one will need to follow up with more research and information to truly understand the breadth of the ideas shared, but this is a great way to find those things you want to learn more about without sitting in a conference room for an hour only to think, maybe I should have gone to that other session. This might be a great model for faculty to share their successful classroom experiences with each other. This way teachers can then pick and choose those project ideas that will work best for them. This relates back to Heath’s point about finding something that makes you feel something. The first step in the cycle of change.
