Applied Innovation Workshop: Testing Tomorrow’s Learning Today

Suzi Jarvis, Founding Director; Colman Farrell, Head of Programme Development; Jason Dinneen, Educational Technologist, UCD Innovation Acacdemy

In a world where the pace of change is only getting faster, how we learn is vital. VR, AI, simulation and other such immersive sensory experiences offer exciting new ways to engage learners. But in order to maximise the potential of these tools, learners must have the right mindset to identify how they can deploy them to maximum effect. In this workshop, a team of facilitators from UCD Innovation Academy will guide you through a participatory learning experience towards developing a more entrepreneurial mindset, one that supports learners to engage others to identify ideas of economic and social value in an iterative fashion, that engages others.
