CCIE Distinguished Lecture Series: Re-imagining Education Through the Transdisciplinary ‘Lens’ of Invention
We are excited to welcome Stephanie Couch to UCF, as part of the CCIE Distinguished Lecture Series. She is the executive director of the Lemelson-MIT Program administered by the School of Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Inventions change the world by improving how society lives, learns, communicates and plays. Value derived from investing in this form of creative output is widely recognized. Educational opportunities that prepare people to engage in transformative, high-impact research to produce patentable solutions that address society’s major challenges has received less attention. This session will explore ways educators can help all learners develop as inventors, starting in the early years and continuing through college, and the many benefits that await those who take up invention education.
