To find out what one of our region’s universities thoughts are on innovation training, I spoke with Angel Cabrera, president of George Mason University. He shared with me an emerging vision of putting innovation skill development on the learning path for all Mason students and to more actively use simulations to do that. He pointed to PatriotHacks, a weekend technology challenge held last weekend at Mason sponsored by Booz Allen Hamilton, Accenture, CACI and Verizon as one example how the vision is coming together. The PatriotHacks innovation simulation involved 250 students, many of whom worked an entire weekend without sleep, to come up with solutions to specific challenges set by the sponsors. — https://www.bizjournals.com/washington/news/2018/10/25/jonathan-aberman-can-you-teach-people-be.html
