Team Discussion: Brainstorming as a Creative Tool to Address a Global Challenge Part I

While there are numerous ways in which individuals get their creative juices flowing, the most common tool for creativity is brainstorming. As individuals, we typically brainstorm by jotting our ideas down. While this is an important part of the creative process, as you enter your chosen field, you will most likely be expected to generate ideas as a group also. The question is, how do we facilitate brainstorming as a group? One way to start is by generating ideas, as informed by the four rules of brainstorming outlined by Alex Osborn within History and Use of Brainstorming (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. on the Creative Minds’ Brainstorming (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. web page. These ideas are then reduced in a process of defining problems and formulating succinct solutions. While there are other ways to brainstorm, you will engage this process of idea generation and consolidation for your discussion.

Step Two: Make a post to this discussion board to define the problem.

Your objective is to establish a specific area of concern related to this Global Challenge, where viable solutions can be proposed.

Components of your post:

  • Use the discussion space to formulate your ideas in a post of a minimum of 150 words.
  • Conclude your post with a single sentence in the form of an answer to a HOW or a WHY question. Be sure to identify clearly and precisely the specific problem you wish to solve.
  • This single sentence represents your definition of the problem.
