‘How to Sharpen Your Creative Thinking Skills’ with Dr Sabina Strachan of how2glu

About this Event

Creative thinking is a valuable and sought-after transferable skill and a great way to overcome obstacles you might face in your research and during your PhD experience.

Creative thinking enables you to consider things in new ways. We’ll look at different kinds of creative thinking skills – such as problem-solving, communication, analytical skills, lateral thinking, flexibility and adaptability – noting existing strengths and development needs.

You will have the chance to try out graphic glucard™ tools individually and in small groups that will help you to connect ideas in different ways, look at issues and information from alternative perspectives, and brainstorm with others to unstick, move forward and innovate.

We all have the ability to develop our creative thought processes and discover new patterns, unorthodox and/or surprising conclusions, and new ways of doing things. In this way you will be able to bring a fresh perspective to your work.

Sabina will illustrate concepts and demonstrate tools by sharing live visualisations, respond to your particular questions and objectives, and highlight follow-on resources.
