HCI Contributors, Marissa Getts and Cassie Bingham had the opportunity to present on April 17th at the the Ashoka Exchange conference! #ashokaexchange2020
The title of their session was, "Teaching Social Innovation: Context Matters and Opportunity Knocks." You can watch the video of their presentation by clicking on the picture below.
Here is the description: Developing and implementing social innovation education programs that balance various stakeholders’ needs can be complex, but need not be daunting. During this hands-on workshop session, presenters from three different institutions invite you to gain insight from the perspectives, challenges, milestones, and lessons they learned from building impactful curricula and co-curricula that cultivate changemakers on their campuses and within their communities.
The Exchange is Ashoka U’s global gathering for social impact educators. The values that guide the Ashoka community are:
Authenticity. Our actions and motivations remain true to our personal and collective values.
Belonging. We are a home for changemakers and a support network of visionary thinkers.
Optimism. Where others see problems, we see the spark of a new idea.
Inclusion. We seek out diverse voices and take active strides to ensure they feel empowered in our community and their perspectives are respected.
Generosity. We are here for each other, eager to listen and share.
Courage. We’re not afraid of unorthodox ideas because they’re inherent to progress.
Respect. We recognize the right of every attendee to feel safe, heard, and valued at the
Exchange. We are all part of this community together and all voices matter.
