The 2018 ADEA CCI Liaisons Summer Meeting,
“The Art of Innovative Thinking,” welcomed ADEA CCI Liaisons for three days of
robust programming, including immersive education, dynamic speakers, exclusive
education, networking opportunities and more.
At-capacity with 84
participants, #CCI2018 was a transformative experience with entirely different
paths toward developing leaders’ change facilitation skills. Breakthrough
activities included small team workshops with improvisational theater artists,
a world-renowned onsite string quartet for high-performance teamwork and an
ADEA collaboration with The Art of Science Learning—a
National Science Foundation-funded initiative—that allowed participants to
engage in metaphorming, a form of
whole-brain arts-and-science-based experiential learning.
This vehicle of arts-based
learning inspired meeting participants to tap into unexpected capacities for
personal mastery through disruptive thinking and contextual intelligence and by
overturning existing frames of reference.
Attendees returned to their
institutions ready to address day-to-day challenges and the impending changes
that are influencing dental education.
