Big Beacon Radio Ep. 12: Innovate & Collaborate Like Thomas Edison
Ep. 12 – How to Innovate and Collaborate Like Thomas Edison
Many writers say we live in singular times calling for unusually great creativity, invention, and innovation and the rapid pace of change in the 21st century is dizzying at times, but the turn of the 19th to the 20th centuries was also a time of miraculous invention and fast-paced innovation. In this episode, host Dave Goldberg goes back to the future with Sarah Miller Caldicott, a great grandniece of the iconic inventor Thomas Edison, to explore Edison’s methods of invention, innovation, and collaboration laid out in two books, “Like Edison” and “Midnight Lunch.” Join Sarah and Dave for this lively exploration of he ways in which Edison’s lessons are relevant to a new generation of makers, coders, shakers, and entrepreneurs. Also consider how these methods may themselves be helpful in the reinvention and reinvigoration of higher education itself.
