In less than three weeks Daniel Pink will be taking the stage at the 2014 Symposium for Teaching and Learning with Technology, and we can hardly wait. When you hear the title of his talk and how perfectly it relates to the Symposium theme of Engaging the Future and Culture of Teaching and Learning with Technology, you will understand why.

Pink’s talk will focus on “How Smart Organizations Are Rethinking Innovation,” highlighting how innovation is no longer anyone’s job – it’s everyone’s job. That’s why a top concern of organizations around the world is not just generating a few new ideas, but creating an entire culture of innovation. In his entertaining and provocative presentation, Daniel Pink, best-selling author of Drive, A Whole New Mind, and To Sell Is Human, will show us how to build that culture here at Penn State.

Some environments promote innovation while others suffocate it, and what better way to begin a day-long investigation of how to “Engage the Culture and Future of TLT” than to hear from Daniel Pink both the big ideas and the the practical steps to create a culture of innovation. Combining the latest findings from social science with an array of fascinating stories, Pink will speak about a number of topics, including the power of making ideas purposeful and how you can help open others to ideas.

Join on March 22 to find out more about what Daniel Pink has to say and how his insights can be applied to creating a culture of innovation in work in higher education and technological innovation!
