This course explores the use of the appropriate thinking skills for creative problem solving. It engages participants in the creative problem solving process and explores different ways of “seeing in the mind’s eyes” as a strategy to improve problems solving abilities. The course will equip participants with the thinking tools and strategies that are highly essential for generating creative outcomes in problem solving.
This course explores the nature of problems, problem solving and creativity, and the creative thinking strategies to generate ideas and concepts for creative problem solving. It introduces participants to the concepts and principles of creative thinking and the creative process to explore alternative approaches to improve idea and concept generation abilities. The course will engage participants in creative thinking approaches that can potentially unleash creative thinking capabilities for problem solving.
This course examines the nature of creativity, its role and impact on the way we work, play and live. The course is grounded in the study that the expression of creativity is manifested in a person, a product and/or a process, and it can be managed. The course explores how the management of creativity in these dimensions helps develop a creative environment that can enhance thinking and induce the abilities to generate creative ideas and concepts for working, playing and living.
This course engages participants in an analytical thinking approach to address issues, problems and situations effectively. The course articulates the approach to problem definition, hypothesis formulation, facts collection and analytical studies during the problem resolution process through a variety of analytical thinking skills and techniques which involve identifying and establishing casual relationships and re-organising complex issues or problems into simple and manageable parts.
This course relates pattern recognition abilities to work experiences and observations to engage in conceptual thinking and make inferences to unleash creative potential for idea generation. The course will provide conceptual thinking tools that relate to authentic tasks to help participants interpret the multiple possibilities and potential of the conceptual thinking tools in their work. The course will elucidate the principles of our cognitive processes to contextualise the conceptual thinking strategies and approaches appropriate for specific tasks.
