You will also learn a variety of energizers and fun grouping games to keep your sessions engaging and interactive. Learn through small- and large-group work, including round-robin sharing and show-and-tell exercises. In this course, you will:
• Explore a variety of divergent and convergent techniques for individual and group problem solving.
• Learn how and where to apply different tools within the CPS process.
• Practice facilitating tools.
• Learn how to create and adapt tools.
• Discover ideation tools that you can apply in other processes, as well.
