TLT Symposium's Open Innovation Challenge seeking ideas for improving higher ed

January 05, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Open Innovation Challenge (OIC) is a highly anticipated part of the annual Symposium for Teaching and Learning with Technology. The OIC showcases out-of-the-box thinking that can open the door to new and exciting opportunities for collaborative research and exploration of educational transformation.

If you have an idea that you feel has potential to improve teaching and learning in higher education, it’s time to put your fingers to the keyboard and send it off for consideration. Those whose ideas move forward in the challenge will give fast-paced, five-minute presentations in front of all symposium attendees, who then vote on their favorite idea. The winning idea will be nurtured by a team of experts to further develop it.

The deadline is Friday, Jan. 26.

This year’s symposium will be held on March 17 at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center. Registration is now open for the event, which is free for all Penn State faculty, staff and students. Keynote speaker is Stephen Dubner, best known as co-author of the "Freakonomics" book series.
