Solving Problems Using Critical Thinking and Creativity
The ability to think both creatively and critically is an invaluable skill set at the heart of effective problem solving. While at first glance creating and critiquing may seem like opposites, they are in fact deeply connected… and part of an ongoing generative cycle. To solve challenging problems, we need to explore them holistically – to unleash our imaginations while also applying structure and discipline to our thought processes.
In this highly interactive course, participants will examine the dynamic interplay between critical and creative thinking. They will actively experiment with various problem-solving approaches and techniques for generating alternative solutions. In pairs and small groups they will investigate their own mental models and biases, testing ideas against a selection of critical thinking standards. At the end of the workshop, they will synthesize what they have learned and create their personal action plan.
