Connecting with Canada’s Engineering Change Lab
The Agile Lab is participating in the work of the Engineering Change Lab based in Canada. Launched in 2015, the Engineering Change Lab is focused on “unlocking the higher potential of engineering” in Canada. It is composed of 40 leaders from the private sector, universities, government and nonprofits.
This month, Liz Nilsen is sharing our work in engineering education with the Engineering Change Lab, which is holding its first U.S. meeting at the University of Nebraska in Omaha.
Our work in engineering education began with the Pathways project, an NSF funded initiative led by Stanford University. Our work is continuing under another NSF grant, called Revolutionizing Engineering Departments, here at Purdue.
You can review the summary of our findings from the Pathways project. We found that applying an agile strategy discipline can empower faculty and student teams in education transformation.
The Director of the Lab at UNA and co-author of Strategic Doing: 10 Skills for Agile Leadership, Ed’s work has focused on developing new models of strategy specifically designed to accelerate complex collaboration in networks and open innovation. He is the original developer of Strategic Doing.
