Participants IDE Master Class
Throwing ideas about in a quick brainstorm session is often based on memory and logic, and with the right experts this often does the trick. However, when facing more complex design issues, or in cases where shared understanding is required, Creative Facilitation offers an important added value when addressing these issues. Creative Facilitation uses the fundamental concepts of Industrial Design Engineering to create and elaborate ideas into workable solutions.
In this Master Class, we address these issues from the point of view of designing and leading creative processes as a creative facilitator.
During this master class, you will learn to:
- create an atmosphere of trust, and achieve so-called ‘suspension of disbelief’;
- design and run creative processes for specific problems or issues;
- inventory and redefine problems and objectives.
Please note: this Master Class has an evening program on the first day.
