TEA Wednesday Webinar: Hackathon – Design Tips to Unleash Fruitful Innovation

May 6, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am CDT

Hackathons are quickly becoming the most talked about conference experiences (both in person and virtually), as they deliver on two key attendee expectations for conferences: Learning and Networking. In this session, Murdock will open his playbook to share proven techniques for tapping the collective wisdom to create potential solutions for all. From creating the right mindset and environment for more fruitful ideation, to engaging a diverse set of perspectives in constructive debate, he’ll cover the full hackathon spectrum.

Participants will emerge from this session with tools and tips to design hackathons that reveal breakthrough ideas to address industry challenges, while igniting cross-disciplinary, collaborative conversations that advance learning and nurture relationships. This fun, interactive and competitive session will connect you to your TEA community in new and compelling ways.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand how key components can be orchestrated to create a richer hackathon experience
  • Develop two techniques that can be applied to jumpstart, enhance and accelerate team hacking exchanges
  • Identify the essentials for designing a successful hackathon experience


A hackathon is an event where people come together in small groups to exercise creative problem solving and to learn new things. If you’ve never experienced one, try it! Murdock refers to the hackathon process as “beautiful chaos.”

Due to the nature of this event, registration is limited. Sign up now.
