for existing organizations – likely in the higher ed or design space – who may be interested in helping us promote the challenge
There’s an open innovation challenge around higher ed that just launched and I'm reaching out because I think you and your network would be especially interested!
The challenge is run on OpenIDEO – an open innovation platforms that uses IDEO’s human-centered design methodology to share and collectively improve solutions to our world’s most pressing problems.
Their recently launched challenge asks, “How might we reimagine the cost of college in the U.S. and how it’s paid for?” and we can’t wait to see the ideas that take shape and come to the table from this exciting global call to action.
It could be a really valuable opportunity for your network to see the design thinking process through and play a critical role in developing new solutions for getting more students to and through college.
Jump into the challenge by creating an OpenIDEO profile if you don’t have one already and commenting or creating a post. There are also pre-written tweets and blurb below that are easy to forward along.
Thanks for your help and I hope to see you in the challenge!
