Innovation Hub Ideas Workshop 2017

The Innovation Hub is pleased to announce that we are hosting an Ideas Workshop on June 5th and 9th for students, faculty and staff to:

  • Take our prototype ideas and explore how they might come to life at U of T, what challenges we might encounter, how we might measure impact and what practical next steps need to be taken to move these ideas forward.
  • Help us start to think about prospective project teams for each of these ideas.

We invite students, faculty and staff from the U of T community to join us as we expand our thinking about these ideas in a fun and collaborative setting.  Each participant will choose one of the ideas (listed below) to workshop.

  • Chill Spots: Use spaces that students already frequent to set up community spaces that could include charging stations, couches and microwaves, and be facilitated by community animators.
  • U of T Concierge: Establish a central location on campus that acts as an initial contact point for wayfinding and referrals. The concierge would also have an online component, connecting students to a 24-hour response tool.
  • Student-Faculty Exploration Café: repurpose an existing central space on campus to act as a hub of activities that support faculty and TA engagement with students.
  • Neighbourhood Communities: virtual communities to connect students who live in the same geographic area, which may include programming such as social events and study groups.
  • Future Readiness Course: a course, customizable by discipline, that incorporates career education and skills development, placement opportunities, and partnerships with U of T alumni for mentorship and career learning.
  • Knowledge Management System: Information about programs, services and resources for students at U of T is found everywhere. Students could be better supported by a system that brings all of this information together in an accessible and easy-to-navigate way.

Workshops will take place on the following dates:

Monday, June 5, 1 – 3 p.m. at Centre for International Experience, Cumberland Room

Friday, June 9, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. at Student Success Centre, Koffler Student Services Building

Register now to attend one of the Innovation Hub Ideas Workshops.

We look forward to seeing you there!
