Davis Bookhart: Introducing Innovation, Collaboration, Scalability, Metrics for Next Generation thinking

  1. 1. Innova&on Collabora&on Scalability Metrics Star&ng  point:  Four  broad  themes  of  discussion.     •  How  do  they  relate  to  campus  sustainability   efforts? •  Are  these  ideas  connected  and  integrated,  or   do  we  typically  think  of  these  in  isola&on? •  How  do  we  take  these  broad  themes  and  bring   them  into  perspec&ve  in  a  prac&cal  sense?  
  2. 2. What  if… How  about  if  we   split  the  university   mission  /  func&ons   into  four  parts… Research  and  discovery   Leveraging  university  resources   and  human  capital  to  solve   pressing  problems  for  human   society   Training   Preparing  students  for  careers   and  social  interac&on  within  a   21st  century  environment   (resource-­‐constraints,  rapid   and  unpredictable  technology   changes,  globaliza&on)   Campus  opera&ons Transi&oning  towards  a   campus  that  becomes  an   integral  part  of  the  learning   experience  and  training  of   the  students. Collabora&ve  impact Contribu&ons  to  the  world   outside  of  the  campus   borders  (“spilling  out”  of   the  Ivory  Tower)
  3. 3. Direc&onal     Movement Campus  opera+ons  –   Con&nues  integra&on  in  student   training Research  and  discovery  –   Con&nues  transi&on  towards  tech   transfer Research  and   Discovery Collabora&ve   impact Campus   Opera&ons Training Con&nual  transi&on  through: 1.  Campus  as  learning  lab 2.  Demonstra&ng  by  doing   (“walking  the  walk”) Increasing  emphasis  to  get  research  “off   the  lab  bench” 1.  Focus  on  implementa&on  in  real  world   seXngs 2.  Integrated  /  cross-­‐disciplinary  /  cross-­‐ sector  research  is  essen&al  
  4. 4. Circular  Linkages Four  areas  con&nue   movement  through   research,  opera&ons,  the   community,  and  student   body. Research  and   Discovery Collabora&ve   impact Training Campus   Opera&ons Sharing  best   prac&ces;   par&cipa&on  in   local  commiZees Community-­‐Based   Learning Internships,   volunteer Tes&ng,  pilot   projects,   demonstra&ons Research  jobs  in   labs,  fellowships Tri-­‐modal   educa&on On-­‐site  feedback,   rigorous  field   tes&ng
  5. 5. Scalability Collabora&on Metrics Innova&on Research  and  discovery   Leveraging  university  resources   and  human  capital  to  solve   pressing  problems  for  human   society   Training   Preparing  students  for  careers   and  social  interac&on  within  a   21st  century  environment   (resource-­‐constraints,  rapid   and  unpredictable  technology   changes,  globaliza&on)   Campus  opera&ons Transi&oning  towards  a   campus  that  becomes  an   integral  part  of  the  learning   experience  and  training  of   the  students. Collabora&ve  impact Contribu&ons  to  the  world   outside  of  the  campus   borders  (“spilling  out”  of   the  Ivory  Tower) Can  we   consider  within   the  original   four  broad   themes  of   discussion?
  6. 6. Discussion 1.  How  these  work  separately 2.  Direc&onal  movements 3.  Strengthening  the  linkages How  do  these  relate  to  what  we   think  of  as  “next  gen?” Sustainability  1.0  – •  Small  movements •  Isolated  areas  of  focus •  Incremental  gains •  “Reduce  impacts”   Sustainability  2.0  – •  Circular  movements •  Integrated  areas  of  focus •  Leaps  and  jumps   •  Transforma&on
