Cross Discipline Collaboration: Working Together to Create Something New

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Cross discipline collaboration in higher education is scarce, and often unheard of. Gannon University's School of Education is proving this idea wrong. "Crayons for Kids" is a project that has developed to meet a number of needs. Through the collection of something as simple as unused and broken crayons, faculty from the Education and Engineering departments at Gannon are collaborating to create a brand new innovative piece of assistive technology that will serve the students attending a private school for children with special needs in Erie, PA. Come and learn about how "Crayons for Kids" is changing the way faculty collaborate, innovate, and serve their local community!
