Creative Techniques to Generate & Manage Innovative Ideas with Fiona Donnelly.

Innovation can be broadly thought of as new ideas, new ways of looking at things, or new methods or products that have value.

The creative process is a critical element of making sense of learning experiences and it is an active process necessary for innovation.

This session includes:

  • a discussion on how sometimes to understand new concepts, develop ideas, & broaden perspectives, our approach to thinking needs to be creative, imaginative and lateral.

  • a brief exploration on how creative thinking can extend learning by being grounded in understanding relevant knowledge: "One cannot think creatively unless one has the knowledge with which to think creatively" (Johnson-Laird, 1988).

  • an introduction to 5 creative idea generation techniques that can be implemented easily in business planning.
