Brown's Creative Mind Initiative has invited Dr. Beth Altringer to present a mini lecture about her explorations in the areas of innovation, creative collaboration, and human-centered design. Dr. Altringer runs the Behavior for Better Innovation Group at Harvard University's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS). The group's contributions range from academic research, to curriculum design, to the provision of monetary and structural support for student entrepreneurial projects. Dr. Altringer's research focuses on the conditions that yield innovative solutions to complex problems. Her work experience includes having been part of the IDEO research team, teaching and research on creative team dynamics as a visiting scholar at the Stanford Institute of Design (D-School), and consulting for the PPR Group, Gucci, and Puma. Please join us for her talk.
