In preparation for the WE Innovate check-in sessions, we are asking for you to fill out a short survey about your preferences and other pertinent logistical questions for the WE Innovate weekend at the Meritage Resort & Spa from Friday January 13 – Sunday January 15.
Please fill out our brief survey by Monday November 7 at 11:59PM PT** (CalNet authentication required). The WE Innovate team will work to assign students to the area of interest that excites you most (see below), however we cannot promise you will be placed in your top choice.
** If you do not fill out the survey by the deadline, the WE Innovate team will randomly choose your domain assignment. **
WE Innovate Domain Selection
The WE Innovate weekend course focuses on using strategic foresight work to identify how technology (and other) changes might disrupt industries and direct innovation in the next decade. Whether thought of as exponential change, digital transformation, or a fourth industrial revolution, tools for assessing and responding to accelerating change are more important than ever.
Rather than focusing on doom and gloom scenarios, we’ll be working on how we might drive innovation towards supporting a “good life” future, where both our own communities — and the 9 billion people on the planet — live well.
You are being asked now to choose the area you would like to focus on for WE Innovate. You will work in this domain with others in your class that share your interest, in both the check-in sessions and in Napa. These areas are purposefully broad so that your team has room for a creative and original work stream. Please familiarize yourself with the domain options for imagining the good life.
You will be notified of your domain and associated pre-work in advance of the check-in sessions. Please watch your email for more information. If you do not fill out the survey, we will randomly assign you to an area of focus.
As a reminder, we expect that you will attend the virtual check-in session on the same day of the week that you attended Fundamentals of Design Thinking.
- Wednesday November 30, 6-8PM PT
- Thursday December 1, 6-8PM PT
- Sunday December 4, 2-4PM PT
If you need to switch sections, please let us know by filling out this form by Sunday November 27 at 11:59PM PT.
