Innovation training exposes the University of Washington and greater Seattle area communities to innovative thinking through workshops and events which integrate, for example, design thinking and lean canvas methods. Innovation Training also supports the University of Washington’s Innovation Imperative by developing programs that expose students, faculty, and staff to innovative thinking and the innovation ecosystem.
Through workshops based on our innovation practices and tools, we help various University of Washington and community organizations find inventive solutions to challenges they encounter. We work with individual teams and organizations to create custom workshops that address the unique challenges and opportunities they face.
We also offer ideathons, which are short, intensive, workshop-like experiences for students to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. Ideathons transform ideas into engaging and targeted learning experiences. Working in teams, students use design thinking and innovative learning practices to ideate on possible solutions to a given issue. Our goal in offering ideathons is to work toward inclusive innovation. For more information contact Magali Eaton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
