Long Beach State University Crowdsources Innovation Ideas

What if you crowdsourced innovation ideas from your faculty and staff?

Reported by EdSurge, Long Beach State University did just that, crowdsourcing 24,000 suggestions from their students, faculty and staff about the future of the university.

Free tuition was a popular suggestion. But creative solutions also came out of this experiment regarding transportation, corporate partnerships, artificial intelligence, and environmental impact – upvoted and amended by the greater group.

The takeaway? There are very likely absolutely game-changing ideas sitting in the minds of your faculty and staff. So, how can you figure out ways to facilitate similar creative conversations en masse with them?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
