10:00 a.m. – 11: 00 a.m. EST What’s My Job? 

Zach Osborne, Associate Director of Career Development at Nova Southeastern University

This introduction to the DACUM as a concept and tool (extremely pertinent given the COVID-19 restrictions) will teach attendees how to use the DACUM to understand their roles in experiential learning, dig deep into success factors and approaches that can be used to achieve greater success, and aid in explaining their role and experiential learning to others.

1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. EST – Design Thinking and Wicked Problem Solving

Joe Catrino, Director of Career Development and Special Assistant to the Vice President for Innovation, Trinity College – Hartford

Attendees will be introduced to design thinking and Stanford University’s award-winning, paradigm-shifting curriculum of designing your life. The design thinking process is a powerful framework for understanding and solving complex problems like how might we support our students’ career development during a pandemic. Professionals will learn how to push beyond their first good idea and discover a new level of creativity and momentum.

10:00 a.m. – 11: 00 a.m. EST – Creativity…Thinking Differently Doesn’t Take a Genius

Mike True, President, INTRUEITION, LLC

Have you ever thought, “I’m just not creative at all”? At a recent experiential learning conference a vast majority of attendees echoed that thought. It is an issue we, our students, our faculty, and administrative colleagues confront all the time. During these unprecedented times of disruption, campuses across the country are looking for solutions to a host of problems. In our time together, we will consider hindrances, helps, and techniques that influence the creative process.

1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. EST – Perfecting Partnerships

Julie Hutt, Director of Internship Programs & Academic Advisor-University of South Carolina Honors College

Meghan Stidd, Assistant Dean for External Relations at University of Colorado – Colorado Springs

Attendees will gain knowledge in general approaches and specific strategies to maximize their success in the area of employer relations and management. Traditional strategies will be discussed as well as avenues to develop partnerships during COVID-19 restrictions.
