InnovaLab is pioneering new forms of social interaction with evolutionary design, systems thinking and hands-on prototyping to transform organizational culture and society. InnovaLab prepares transforming learners to aspire to ideal futures. Society ́s needs require evolutionary learning to manifest fresh and imaginative ideas, products, services, new business models and action. We offer a Design Journey to gain personal, team and organizational competencies.

Description

Our activities are based on the exploratory, participatory and interpretive ways of knowing in Serious Games. We facilitate a series of deep dialogues, fabrication workshops, co-design experiences, visioning field-trips and ethnographic research treks to explore the self and life-work through design innovation.InnovaLab offers learners concentric growth of knowledge and experience in two-day to semester long modules. Our staff guides learners with techniques, tools in creative learning environments to: 1.) challenge learners to explore existing beliefs, 2.) expose them to new ideas, 3.) assign tasks which re-evaluate, redefine and apply new understanding 4.) and select and evolve projects inside their organizations. With an opportunity for integrity in their life-work learners activate their team ́s and organization ́s transformation. With heightened awareness and emergent critical and creative confidence the momentum drives broader self-development and life-world evolution.

InnovaLab experiments in creative environmental learning systems in social design settings for transformative learning and organizational transformation. In InnovaLab ́s co-lab, Bermeo Fab Lab builds new design and prototype experiences that enables learners to build almost anything. We have learned that success requires the multi-disciplined strengths, capabilities and resources of motivated and talented individuals, a collaborative team, a supportive resource community, an expert network and safe environment to test ideal futures. InnovaLab Afloat, the fourth lab in the InnovaLab network, will be aboard a 35m boat.
