Transcript

  • 1. Virtual integration of diversity: Real transdisciplinarity
    1
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
  • 2. Innovation through diversity integration
    Background: what it means to innovate & integrate
    Theoretical and philosophical (e.g., the “Other”)
    Practical (e.g., “diversity” dealings)
    Functional
    In business
    In design
    In language and culture courses
    2
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
  • 3. Virtually innovativediversity integration: 4 steps
    The business school model, Rotman-style
    Salience
    Causality
    Architecture
    Resolution
    3
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
  • 4. Virtual diversity integration
    Step #1: Rotman-style “salience”
    Mental triage, deciding what is/is not relevant
    Consideration of multiple variables
    Weighing of numerous options
    Consideration of consequences
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
    4
  • 5. Innovation, integration, and diversity
    Step #2: Rotman-style “causality”
    Seek and exploration
    Seek the non-linear
    Seek the multi-directional
    Seek interrelationships
    Seek the “prime cause”
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
    5
  • 6. Integrated innovation in a diverse world
    Step #3: Rotman-style “architecture”
    Model-building
    Module-building
    Care to avoid “narrow perfectionism”
    Backgrounding/foregrounding in turns
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
    6
  • 7. Integration of diversity for innovation
    Step #4: Rotman-style “resolution”
    Using challenges as forms of physical tension
    Using physical tension as impetus to creativity
    Using problems as aspects of a “messy whole”
    Moving always toward the optimal
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
    7
  • 8. Innovation via integration: 5 ways
    The design school five-way model
    Mood
    Context
    Requirements
    Design solutions
    Design evaluation
    8
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
  • 9. Innovation through integrated diversity, oui!
    Cottong/Burney-style “mood”:
    a first way to integrate
    “Atmosphere”
    Transformative thought
    Creative process-building
    for innovation
    Cultural sensitivity
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
    9
  • 10. Innovative integration through diversity
    Cottong/Burney-style “context”: Way #2
    Human: who will use…
    Practical: what used for….
    Significance triage
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
    10
  • 11. Virtual diversityintegration
    Cottong/Burney-style “requirements”: Way #3
    Business needs
    User goals
    Responsiveness to business, economics, and humans
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
    11
  • 12. Innovative integration: Diversity, oui!
    Cottong/Burney-style “design solutions”: Way #4
    First, propose many rough concepts
    Second, discuss the concepts
    Third, entertain alternative perspectives of concepts
    Fourth, foster a feeling of concept “ownership”
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
    12
  • 13. Virtual integration of diversity
    Cottong/Burney-style “design evaluation”: Way #5
    Test alternatives among real users
    Use “beta-testing” practices
    Use “quality testing”
    Evaluate and re-evaluate continuously
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
    13
  • 14. Virtual diversity integration: 4 strategies
    Language and culture integrated, Coastline-style
    Brainstorming
    Defining a problem
    Role-playing
    Applying alternative strategies
    14
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
  • 15. Virtual diversity integration: 1 strategy
    Coastline language/culture “problem defining”
    Determine each learner’s mood
    Determine preferred learning styles
    Determine central goal and ancillaries
    Experiment!
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
    15
  • 16. Virtual diversity integration: a second strategy
    Coastline French “role playing”
    Experimentation
    Engagement
    Immersion
    Argumentation à la française
    Spherical growth
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
    16
  • 17. Innovation, integration, and diversity: strategy #3
    Coastline French “problem-solving alternatives”
    Empathy development
    Thought process development
    Productivity development
    Creativity development
    Non-evaluative, transdisciplinary thought development
    KA Watson, Coastline CC
    17
  • 18. Virtually integrated diversity is…
    Cross-cultural, literally and figuratively
    Cross-generational
    Transdisciplinary
    18
