2. How do you get experts out of their specialized silos? How do you get political and civic leaders to engage with experts productively?

3. How, where, who  is CMU/PGH an incubator of the future? How do CMU/PITT/PGH/METRO REGION interact?

4. What are areas of excellence for PGH and CMU?

4:45-5:30  EST Andrew Ellis is tele-guest to discuss the GFE/CI program and the GFE LEARNING JOURNEY to PGH.

5:30- 6:00 EST Student teams interview each other: What are your reactions, thoughts, questions about the GFE/CI program and the PGH LEARNING JOURNEY. Discuss breaking down a huge field – in this case The Transformation of K12 Education – and organizational silos into a finite superset – 10 – of shared, cross-cutting pathways. How can designers use/contribute to BIG FIELD transformation? How would you make the GFE/CI program more useful/usable to accelerate & scale diffusion, acceptance, adoption/execution? Make a concept map: What we like, don’t like, question, would change, agree with, disagree with, don’t understand, want to know more about.
