Nicolet College staff members John Bates and Daniel Goscha recently joined other professionals and leaders in education, science, business and the arts for America’s Imagination Summit in New York City.

The two-day event sponsored by the Lincoln Center Institute was the culmination of two years of work aimed at guiding national education policy to ensure students are taught the skills necessary to thrive in the 21st Century. The focus was on the role of imagination, creativity and innovation in education.

Bates is an author and Nicolet Disability Support Services case manager. Goscha teaches graphic design and digital media arts at the college.

Work leading up to the national summit involved each of the 50 states holding its own Imagination Conversation. Bates and Goscha shared the findings from the Wisconsin Imagination Conversation, which was held last summer at Nicolet College.

Nicolet graduate Hailey Lundborg produced a documentary video of the Nicolet Imagination Conversation which was featured at the national summit. The National Education Association and the Walt Disney Company sponsored America’s Imagination Summit.
