The Art of Innovative Thinking

“To develop a complete mind: Study the science of art; Study the art of science. Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.” 

—Leonardo da Vinci, Scientist, Artist, Inventor


Ready to “see the world through different eyes” to re-envision solutions to everyday leadership issues? Then join us. Don’t miss The Art of Innovative Thinking—the 2018 ADEA Commission on Change and Innovation in Dental Education (ADEA CCI) Liaisons Summer Meeting—from June 5-7 in Baltimore, MD.

This summer’s ADEA CCI Liaisons’ experience takes an entirely different path toward developing leaders’ change facilitation skills. Through a collaboration with The Art of Science Learning—a National Science Foundation-funded initiative—you will leverage disruption to spark creativity and innovation. Translate breakthrough ideas and innovative concepts into practical plans through Metaphorming, a form of whole-brain arts-and-science-based experiential learning. Work in small teams with improvisational theater artists to spark flexible, adaptive and productive idea development.

It’s novel. It’s new. It’s time. Go deep inside the workings of a world-renowned string quartet to empower high performance teamwork and achieve excellent outcomes. Engage in an empowering environment designed to help dissolve barriers to change and break new ground, tapping into perhaps unexpected capacities for innovative thinking and personal leadership. Return to your institution ready to apply new-found perspective and refreshed strategies to address the day-to-day challenges and impending changes influencing dental education.
