My Mobile Office

Where to start being a resident futurist?  By going mobile, I think.  I've spoken to the head of ITS and I'm going to get an iPad that will, for all intents and purposes, become my office.  I plan to move around, sit down and set up all over the university.  I want to meet more people, see how things work, see where change is desirable and necessary, see who the change agents are.  Listen, learn, inspire if I can. 

Education Futurist in Residence

What is the dream job of an education futurist?  Well, find yourself living in a great city and working in a world-class university and be directed to bring about change.  No permissions required, no routine paperwork - just get into action animating change.  Success criteria?  Engaging teaching, engaged learning.  My title is Senior Advisor, Education Innovations and my job description is "shake things up."  The dream job - education futurist in residence!
