In this module, you’ll explore social innovation as a growing universe of new techniques and methods intended to unleash creative solutions to deeply rooted challenges. You’ll define social innovation, understand its history and uncover an array of tools and methods.
You’ll discover the Innovator’s Journey as a framework for social innovation tools and as a way to transform the way you see the problem itself. You will learn from individual cases, as well as from the perspectives and experiences other participants bring into the course.
You will also learn to define and redefine your problem within a larger context using whole-systems thinking tools such as causal mapping, the adaptive cycle and stakeholder mapping.
