Dr. John Tichenor brought his first seminar titled “Life at the Intersection: Examining the Collision of Ideas, Innovations, and Culture” over to tour the facility and talk about the role of makerspaces in fueling innovation.
This is the course description for his seminar:
“What do termites and architecture have in common? Music records and airlines? And what does any of this have to do with healthcare, card games or cooking?” In this course, we will examine these questions and many more as we study and discuss how ideas and innovations come together in often-explosive ways. We will use a study of the Medici Effect and other works to challenge ourselves to see beyond our own current expertise and to actively approach new situations, including the first year in college, in creative and game-changing ways.
Dr. John Tichenor is Associate Professor in the Decision and Information Science department in the School of Business Administration.
