The journey begins in this first course as we reframe how problems are defined. You’ll use tools of systems thinking, human-centred design, and innovative research to reframe and deepen your thinking about a social problem. From this larger view, ideas for new interventions can be generated and tested with the wider ‘ecosystem’ of individuals and organizations.
Part-time, in classSocial Innovation Certificate
The Innovator’s Journey
Through six courses, our Social Innovation Certificate introduces the building blocks and core concepts of social innovation through an applied learning process modelled on the Innovator’s Journey.
Over the course of the program, you’ll benefit from applied learning and mentor support, and by building out your own social innovation strategy canvas. The practicum and coaching course is ongoing and designed to support practical learning throughout the program. You will have the opportunity to work on an innovation project relevant to your work context, with one-on-one and peer coaching woven throughout. (This course is open only to accepted certificate students.)
