4.30pm – 6.30pm

After February’s sold out conversation exploring De Bono’s lateral thinking theories we continue our focus on creative problem solving.

We are looking forward to welcoming Dr Scott Sherwood who will lead a participative and engaging 2 hour workshop sharing some tools and exercises you can use to consider new thinking about existing issues in school, community or work.

This session will introduce design thinking, a rigorous creative process that enables individuals and organisations to identify and articulate the challenges they face, while also enabling them to create feasible and viable solutions. Using design thinking tools and methodologies, individuals and organisations are able to develop empathy for the people they are designing for (i.e. pupils, students, teachers, lecturers, staff etc), challenge their own assumptions and understand their underlying motivations.

Dr Scott Sherwood is a widely published academic and has led organisational change initiatives, including the innovation programme in the Technology Strategy Board’s £24 million Future City Demonstrator.

This workshops is open to head teachers, teachers, SLA’s, education officers, early year’s educators, lecturers (FE and HE), students, arts development officers, CLD officers, youth workers, community workers etc. This workshop would also be of interest to creative practitioners working in a learning / community context. All welcome.
