ID : 525   
« back to classes page
It's never too late to (re-)discover innovative ways of thinking and problem solving! This course is designed to help enable CWA members with a more creative approach to idea generation and problem solving. Students will experience a hands-on, interactive seminar using games, puzzles, and brainteasers to actively engage their minds (and others') in a creative group process. Topics include: Problems with problem definition, learning how to look at things in different ways, lateral versus vertical thinking styles, and identifying and overcoming conceptual “blocks” to problem solving. Join us to find out what it means to "...think outside the blox."
