UIF team blog post: A Family of Changemakers

1- Building a Culture of Innovation

At Google, we were hosted by Chief Innovation Evangelist Frederik Pferdt. We explored the common strategies that UIF and Google use to build a culture of innovation, and dived into moonshot thinking and prototyping to bring bold ideas to life. We also looked at what makes effective teams.

2- Reimagining Learning

Through a circuit of activities, we explored different ways of learning, engaging our whole selves, and shaping our environment to foster creative behaviors.

3- Unconference

When you bring together a group of talented and passionate people (that’s you, Fellows!), an Unconference is a great way to allow conversations to grow organically based on the interests of those in the room.

4- Unleashing the power of the UIF movement

Whether you are designing a workshop, a meeting, or a space, keep in mind the needs and motivations of the stakeholders, and intentionally design the flow of activities and the environment. Use the resources here as a guide.

Benjamin Franklin said: “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” A great way to get others on board is to engage them in an activity. We designed a 2-hour activity called “The Innovator’s Toolkit: Design Thinking” that you can use to engage others in practicing the behaviors and mindsets of innovators. This activity can be done in teams or individually, and with small or large groups.

At the Meetup we challenged Fellows to host at least 4 workshops by April 30, 2018. Read more about the d.challenge and access all of the materials you need here:
