Learning Summit

Learning Summit—Houston
Innovative Thinking for Community Colleges

Hosted by Houston Community College at the West Houston Institute

In a workshop facilitated by recognized experts in innovation, Learning Summit-Houston will take participants on a deep dive into the process of innovative thinking. College teams will engage directly with proven material and activities to explore the five themes of the EdgeMakers curriculum in an activity-based workshop. Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of how to use the process of innovative thinking, and leave with actionable solutions to real-world challenges to take back to their college, colleagues, and community.

About the Learning Summit

In an effort to make the Learning Summits more accessible, the League will offer three regional events. Based on feedback from past Learning Summit participants, the 2018 Summits will be two-day events focused on a single topic in a workshop format, with highly regarded experts helping college teams to learn and integrate new strategies and solutions that make sense for their campuses.

The Learning Summit is a working retreat for college teams to focus on improving and expanding learning at their institutions and to accelerate progress on these efforts. To that end, before the Summit, each college team is strongly encouraged to identify a specific project or initiative that will be its focus during the Summit. For example, your team may decide to plan a new or emerging initiative, redesign or strengthen an existing program or project, or reinvigorate a postponed or stalled effort.
