This Summit, hosted by the Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts and the Social Sciences (I-CHASS), the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), and the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, College of Education, at the University of Illinois (UIUC), will convene leading practitioners, researchers and scholars of innovation to collectively consider how education in the US might be reconfigured to both support and teach innovation as a core curriculum mission, with a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Summit participants will identify and articulate strategies for creating and sustaining learning environments that promise the development of innovative thinking skills, behaviors and dispositions that reward students, teachers, faculty and administrators for practicing and tuning these skills. Summit organizers will create a private online space where participants will be encouraged to continue discussions or comment further on the ideas generated over the course of the Summit. Mapping social networks of and among participants will provide insights into how innovation practices are shared and spread across relationships and networks. Ideas that emerge from the Summit will be made publicly available via the Radical Innovation Summit’s website.

The Summit, and research that is developed from the meeting, is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation’s DRK12 program.
