Description: 

What is innovation? Where does it come from? What are its values? How are innovative careers made? Using collaborative student-directed inquiry, this graduate seminar investigates how innovation has become the organizing frame for work across the arts, design, engineering, and sciences. With students from programs across campus we explore the boundaries, methods, hype, and deeper meanings of "innovation. The class is an opportunity for students to be creative and proactive about their learning in ways that traditional courses often unintentionally discourage.
