How to have Groundbreaking Ideas Workshop

No one achieves anything alone...

To find new solutions to the big problems we face today, we have to bring people together to create the best ideas possible. But what factors lead to a team being creative and innovative? How can you make sure you get the best ideas out of your team?

Linda Folk is a PhD student in the Centre for Cultural and Media Policy studies and will introduce you to the basic principles and techniques of creative teamwork in this hourlong workshop. You will leave with valuable insights into how to lead and work in teams that strive for innovation and change.

You will explore:

    • Different ways to generate ideas in teams
      • Structures that foster creative teamwork
        • What to do and not to do when creating the big new idea.

        Please note that this workshop includes team exercises that are part of Linda's PhD research at the University of Warwick. By participating in the workshop you are giving your consent for the anonymized output of these exercises to be used in the completion of her doctoral thesis at the University.

        Sounds good. How do I get involved?

        If you would like to take part, please complete the online form indicating your availability on the following dates by no later than 17.00 on Friday 2nd February 2019.
