“I learned a variety of innovative ways to ensure experiential learning.”
– Andrea Gunther, Visa
Our agenda is full – starting with a kickoff on Sunday evening, September 18, which includes an introduction to Innovations in Training, a visit to an arts-based sustainability project, dinner, and more. Then, two more days on the road visiting Austin's super-creative — famously "weird" — innovators! And YOU will get to visit the incredible places where they create their magic!
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 – 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Dumpster Project at Huston-Tillotson University
How do you inspire learners? Can one learning program have many layers of engagement? Where do design and innovation intersect learning? What role do the arts (does an artist) play in creating/designing more-engaging learning experiences? How do we leverage learning to help our organizations accomplish their sustainability goals? What happens when the public interacts with your learning programs?
Experience the answer to these questions and discover a lot more connections when we visit The Dumpster Project at Huston-Tillotson University, a historically black institution located in the heart of East Austin, to kick off Innovations in Training Austin!
The Dumpster Project is a grand design experiment that not only uses the real-world challenge of transforming a trash dumpster into a tiny sustainable home to inspire learners of all ages — it simultaneously serves as a re-imagining of home, a portable learning initiative, a sustainability conversation, a creative branch of wider green campus initiatives, and an innovative STEM education platform.
“Innovations in Training is unlike anything I’ve seen offered at a conference before. It was great to see real innovations already implemented at organizations – and gain ideas and insights to bring back to my team.”
– Lisa O'Donnell, Director of Instructional Design, KPMG
