Creative Collaboration

Module Two

Creative Collaboration is the ability for a group to work together in ways that encourage seeing new possibilities. Our thinking can often be limited by unconscious constraints and conditioned patterns of thinking. Having habits and tools to unleash creativity can help groups create imaginative potential and harness productive energy in groups.


At the conclusion of this module, participants will be able to:

  1. Cultivate personal habits that lead to creative thinking.

  2. Employ a number of tools to help unlock group creativity.

  3. Direct collaborative energy toward finding innovative solutions and new opportunities.

MODULE DESIGN

This module is structured with a series of topics explored through activities. These activities give participants a chance to experience these concepts through hands on practice, often completed in small groups. Then participants reflect on their own experiences and how these skills or tools could be useful in supporting creativity in small groups and thus collaborative discussion.
