What we’re learning about innovation at MSU Global

How do we actually facilitate faculty innovation at Michigan State University? To better understand our innovation advocacy practices, we conducted a three-part reflective self study this year and have some initial answers. We’re sharing our initial findings in this 3-pager. Bill Heinrich also shared insights in this blog post.

Here’s how we learned about what we do:

1. Reflected on our own patterns and profile through a self-study

2. Used the Innovation Strengths Preference Indicator (ISPI), a commercial psychometric tool; and

3. Experimented with gatherings and creative activities for dynamic partnerships and connectivity.
