In the new Learning Community Strategy: Getting Real about Options, a group of students and professionals will tackle a real-life problem. However, many participants do not have much experience in a creative way of problem-solving: coming up with new and original solutions might not be easy for them. Do you recognize this issue? If so, this inspiring workshop will make you understand more of the mindset and skills it takes to engage in creating problem-solving. You will experience that linear thinking and desk research alone are not enough to tackle complex topics in our fast changing world and that fun and playfulness are valuable creativity & productivity enhancers!
This interactive session will be build up with short pieces of background theory an exercise to train the right mindset and then work in groups of 3. This will be repeated several times.
