Are We Powering up Education Through the Use of Open Innovation Challenge Calls?
Do open innovation challenge calls in education actually work? This participatory session will examine that question with a focus on the rationale for when to use (or not) open innovation  competitions. Panelists will discuss the associated considerations for design, use, and measuring the effectiveness and impact of these types of calls to attract non-traditional problem-solving  approaches and innovators.
