An interview with Wyn Griffiths, Product Design Course Leader at Middlesex University (MDX) about using the OpenIDEO Open Innovation/Community Collaboration as a mechanism for vertically integrated cross-year design education.

For two weeks, at the beginning of December 2012, he cancelled all classes across the three years of his Product Design course, to bring students and staff together to work on the OpenIDEO Workplace Wellness Challenge. Together, they worked under the banner of ‘compete with the issue, not one another’, to introduce the concept of Open Innovation and to get involved with community collaboration.
