In the March issue of Technology & Innovation (Vol. 18, 2017) there is an article entitled “THOUGHTS on IMPROVING INNOVATION: What are the Characteristics of Innovation and How do we cultivate them?”
The premise of the article is that innovation is critically needed in the education effort. The authors say upfront: “Although it is unlikely that education can create innovative traits in an individual, education may very well be able to improve the ability of individuals to utilize the traits they possess”.
The Association’s Innovation Convocation on May 4th is about helping individuals recognize and utilize the traits they possess. For more information or to register for the Convocation facilitated by the BRAVE NEW WORKSHOP go to the MACS Events Page at here.
