Great post Abe. This is exciting and courageous stuff you are doing here. We cannot expect everything we do to be a success — we don’t ask this of our students! I am hoping Tom Barrett or Steve Brophy can hook you up with someone on the same journey in your neck of the woods. I reached out to them on Twitter. You should listen to Steve’s latest podcast, where he and Dean talk to Tom about a bunch of topics, but there is a really great section on innovation and collaboration and curiosity that I think would speak to your context.
Looking forward to the fab collab man!
