Social Innovations at Higher Education Institutions: What, Who, Why, How?
What are social innovations? Who is involved? Why does a professor deal with social innovations? How can they be supported - and what are the obstacles? How can they be integrated in the curriculum?

Two teams - from the USA and Germany - will present their projects and work with you in four workshops on social innovation.

Project WISIH: The german CHE team will present results from their project "Ways and Indicators of Social Innovation from Higher Education Institutions". These include results of a quantitative survey among professors in which they were asked whether they currently work on or have worked on social innovations, which support and obstacles they encountered during the work process and how they would describe their personality traits. A qualitative survey conducted as part of the project also focused on the processes of social innovations.

After presenting the main findings the team will offer three workshops on the topics of personality traits of social innovators, specifics of certain subjects and questions of university management that come up in connection with social innovations.

Projekt JMU: This workshop introduces participants to tools that can be used to address complex social innovation problems in a variety of ways that enhance student learning. Specifically, participants will explore how to use design thinking to facilitate structured brainstorming and prototyping in response to a highly complex problem. Workshop participants will also be introduced to Value Proposition Design and the Business Model Canvas and their applicability to support social innovation projects in the classroom. Workshop participants will understand the purpose of the above concepts in innovation classes; learn ways of using them in classroom settings, and discuss opportunities and challenges for applying them to social innovation efforts.
