Forth Valley Creative Learning’s second Creative
Conversation for 2015 is happening tomorrow, Wednesday 18th March,
4.30pm – 6.30pm.
There are still a few places remaining if you would like to come along
or if any staff are interested in attending.
Design Thinking – Solving Problems and Challenges using Creative
Led by Dr Scott Sherwood – Live Think Design
Makers Gallery and Bistro, Alloa, Clackmannanshire
Wednesday 18th March 2015
4.30pm – 6.30pm
Doors open at 4pm for refreshments and registration and time after for
networking and refreshments until 7pm
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.
