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