Preconference Tutorials

Each participant had varying levels of knowledge on the topics included in this year’s conference. To help create a common language for the meeting, participants were asked to engage in pre-conference learning and to participate in a pre-conference activity related to their seed idea team.

OBSERVATION ACTIVITY

In addition to reviewing tutorials related to the overall conference and seed ideas, attendees were asked to “do” or “observe” something related to their assigned seed idea prior to the conference. The purpose of this exercise was to help participants identify what the problem meant to them and how it fits into a larger context. Participants shared their experiences with their seed idea team members on the first day of the conference. Examples included observing and documenting a visit in a healthcare setting as a patient or volunteer (seed idea C); taking an outdoor yoga class and journaling the experience (seed idea E); visiting a farm-to-table restaurant to uncover details about the origins of ingredients in food (seed idea G); or participating in a citizen science project (seed idea K).

Attendees were asked to consider the following to help them choose what they wanted to focus on for this pre-conference exercise:

  1. An activity that directly relates to their assigned seed idea. Alternatively, attendees could choose an activity that would help

  1. them gain insight into how someone with a different perspective/background views the seed idea (e.g., scientists working on a challenge about the human microbiome could attend an art installation that uses bacteria as an artistic material).

  2. Documenting the activity through journaling, taking photos or video, blogging, etc., to help attendees remember the experience and share it with their teammates at the NAKFI conference.
  3. Reflecting on the experience by taking a step back after the activity to get a sense of the big-picture “take-aways”: did this experience help the attendee uncover anything about the seed idea that’s interesting, inspiring, or especially problematic?

Preconference Inspiration Tutorials provided inspiration for the conference through stories about art-science “aha” moments, innovation and creativity, and a behind-the-scenes look at planning the 2015 NAKFI conference. Seed Idea Tutorials related to the individual seed ideas and were intended to inspire creative thinking about these ideas.

“Why Truly Innovative Science Demands a Leap into the Unknown” by NAKFI Alum Uri Alon. While studying for his Ph.D. in physics, Uri Alon thought he was a failure because all his research paths led to dead ends. But, with the help of improv theater, he came to realize that there could be joy in getting lost. A call for scientists to stop thinking of research as a direct line from question to answer, but as something more creative. It’s a message that will resonate, no matter what your field.

“Why It’s Time to Forget the Pecking Order at Work” TED Talk by Margaret Heffernan. Organizations are often run according to “the superchicken model,” where the value is placed on star employees who outperform others. And yet, this isn’t what drives the most high-achieving teams. Business leader Margaret Heffernan observes that it is social cohesion—built every coffee break, every time one team member asks another for help—that leads over time to great results. It’s a radical rethink of what drives us to do our best work, and what it means to be a leader. Because as Heffernan points out: “Companies don’t have ideas. Only people do.” http://www.ted.com/talks/margaret_heffernan_why_it_s_time_to_forget_the_pecking_order_at_work#t-76038

It no longer functions in the conventional way at the whim of snack-hungry students but instead now finds itself in the control of outside forces. . . . Its new nervous system is a networked computer. Hidden out of view and running special software, it continually scans the news on the BBC News RSS feed—commanding the machine only to release snacks when words relating to the recession make the headlines. Whilst seemingly an act of generosity—gifting free food at moments when further doom and gloom is reported—the Vending Machine also hints toward a time in the future when our access to food may literally be determined by wider political or environmental events: http://www.ellieharrison.com/index.php?pagecolor=3&pageId=project-vendingmachine.

Science and art were not always two separate entities. Historically, times of great scientific progress occurred during profound movements in art, the two disciplines working together to enrich and expand humanity’s understanding of its place in this cosmos. Only recently has a dividing line been drawn, and this seeming dichotomy misses some of the fundamental similarities between the two endeavors.

At the National Academies Keck Futures Initiative Conference on Art, Design and Science, Engineering and Medicine Frontier Collaborations: Ideation, Translation, and Realization, participants spent 3 days exploring diverse challenges at the interface of science, engineering, and medicine. They were arranged into Seed Groups that were intentionally diverse, to encourage the generation of new approaches by combining a range of different types of contributions. The teams included creative practitioners from the fields of art, design, communications, science, engineering, and medicine, as well as representatives from private and public funding agencies, universities, businesses, journals, and the science media.
