This week, it’s about innovation at work. And being part of an ‘innovation ecosystem’ that will exceed your wildest expectations.

U computer science and engineering professor, Erik Brunvand, is using experimental music and electronic noise to teach non-technical students “technology fluency,” in his new class, Making Noise: Sound Art and Digital Media.

Technological fluency means you learn to understand how things operate from the inside. It’s a process where insight begins by first taking something apart, like a Barbie keyboard, and then putting it back together in a unique way that you control.

Erik Brunvand is a gregarious, bass-playing, bluegrass-loving guy. He’s open and eager to help, a TEDx featured speaker, and a fascinating expert to talk with.

If you’re a student, or anyone, who gets woozy when you think about how your iPhone works, discover how that doesn’t have to get in your way.
