The impetus behind the Innovation Lab is to give teachers a platform to identify and analyze real-world problems and collaborate with their colleagues to conceptualize tangible solutions.
The Innovation Lab guides teachers through an intensive workshop in which they learn the fundamentals of how to identify entrepreneurship processes to solve problems faced in education. Teachers will work in teams to solve those problems, build their social networks with other teachers and formulate and present final presentations.

It is integral to the teachers’ adoption of the workshop that they have a vested interest in the problem they are trying to solve as they work in teams to find a solution. The workshop will encourage teachers to think critically about the problems they face in education: who are the key stakeholders involved? Do other people identify with this problem? How can you test the market to validate this problem?
The Educator's Innovation Lab is Monday, June 11 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. at UCA Downtown.
This Innovation Lab is a special program presented in partnership with Economics Arkansas. Economics Arkansas provides resources and training to PreK-12 teachers in both public and independent schools in Arkansas showing how to incorporate principles of economics and personal finance into the classroom curriculum.
