GSRC - Open Innovation Space (OIS)
Friday, April 7, 2017
OIS is a space for dialogue regarding questions, research, and emerging themes within our conference topics.
Diversity & Inclusion
Environment – Social
Environment – Land, Water, Climate
Youth, Children, Childhood Studies
Culture & Identity
Language & Literacies
Choose a table and sit with colleagues to discuss the topic, your interest or research, and find some emergent themes together.
Select a facilitator to help manage the conversation and a recorder to take notes of the highlights from the conversation. Be prepared to share:
- ONE Key Insight
- ONE Question that has emerged from your time together
- ONE Possible symposium title (if you were to host a future event in your topic area)
We will ask you to wrap up your discussion and present your INSIGHT, QUESTION, and SYMPOSIUM TITLE at approx. 10:45am. You’ll have 1-2 minutes to present your findings as a group.
FOUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
Whoever comes are the right people.
Whatever happens is the only thing that could have.
Whenever it starts is the right time.
When it’s over, it’s over.
ONE LAW: THE LAW OF TWO FEET
If you find yourself in a situation where you are neither learning nor contributing, you use your two feet and go to some more productive place.
