I am trying to be deeply optimistic in that this election will be the catalyst we need to bring the change so many desperately seek. In leading design thinking workshops for schools and organizations, I can say with 100% confidence that by spending time engaging in meaningful conversations and activities, we can be the change we wish to see, in ourselves and within our students.
Last month, David Holzmer, Ai Zhang, Beth Holland and I hosted the first episode of our monthly talk show called Reimagine Higher Education. David, Ai and I met via Snapchat and our conversations were the catalyst behind the new series. One of our viewers was Dr. Terri Cullen, a professor at the Ohio State University. As we began sharing our experience with Snapchat she became increasingly curious about the platform.
