In 1962 visionary Dr Douglas Engelbart wrote a paper "AUGMENTING HUMAN INTELLECT: A Conceptual Framework" that lead to many of the innovations in modern computing: hypertext, networked collaborative computing, multiple windows, videoconferencing, word processing and graphics, and his most famous invention, the mouse. We will present case studies of how Englebart's work is being applied in an academic environment and ask participants to brainstorm on how we can start improving our improvement capabilities. Eileen Clegg will create a visual map of our collective vision during the workshop.
