Mark Suter has been teaching an innovation mindset for 10 years throughout courses in computer science, game design, and multimedia courses in Ohio. His classroom is a hybrid of a mad-scientist’s laboratory and a traveling circus. Mistakes are encouraged, iteration is frequent, and expectations are high.
Mark is director of a student-driven club that provides web design and video production services in exchange for donations to the club. Students learn what they need to stay afloat in a “just in time” manner rather than a “just in case” one. Real world consequences, both positive and negative, are a part of the everyday experience to provide relevance and urgency.
Mark won the 2015 The Henry Ford Innovation Nation Innovative Teacher award, and is an Adobe Certified Associate Educator.
