For effective creative problem solving, teachers must be able to help students to redefine problems, come up with innovative responses, and implement solutions. Further, teachers must challenge their students to move outside of their existing comfort zones and recognize the value of exploration.
This highly interactive workshop aims to equip teachers with strategies for idea generation before designing and implementing effective solutions. They will learn how to empower their students to go beyond conventional thinking and arrive at novel and useful solutions. Teachers will be shown how to guide their students to work collaboratively to solve authentic real-world tasks. In addition, they will also discover how to enable their students to convey their ideas coherently.
Through engaging activities, teachers will acquire practical strategies to help their students develop habits of mind that will allow them to apply creative problem solving in their daily lives. The tools and techniques shared at this workshop will make learning fun, engaging, and collaborative.
