During this JPN episode, Alex Enkerli talks with Ann-Louise Davidson who runs the Innovation Lab at Concordia University. This conversation occurred in March 2021, shortly before Ann-Louise officially launched her lab.
This conversation covers a lot of ground, going all the way back to Ann-Louise’s childhood experiences. Those learning experiences lead to an approach to learning focused on creativity and curiosity. Ann-Louise’s experience with makerspaces is relatively rare in higher education. Her approach brings a new perspective on the work we do as learning professionals.
Ann-Louise also addresses issues surrounding networking as opportunity seeking along with differences between Ontario and Quebec, especially as they relate to CEGEPs.
