​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​CoLab Methodologies: Video Series

Alberta CoLab was ended in March 2020. This page exists as a historical record.

The videos below were created by Alberta CoLab in 2018 to support training and capacity building on CoLab's primary methodologies: systemic design and strategic foresight. To date, the CoLab team has used these videos to support field building work with other public sector innovation labs, including the United Nations Development Program.

Enjoy as CoLab team members Brent Wellsch and Salvatore Cucchiara take you on a methdological voyage of discovery. If you have any questions, comments, or feedback on these videos, or if you use them to support your work or with your teams, please let us know!​

Thank you to the folks ​with the Strategic Engagement Branch of Alberta Education whose video skills helped make these look professional. 

Please note that the ability to skip forward and backward in the videos is only available using Internet Explorer as your browser.
