Generating Ideas – The Power of Brainstorming

Wednesday, February 27th @ 6:00 pm8:00 pm

Free

Note: Due to inclement weather resulting in the university closure on Feb 13th and the Reading Week break the following week (Feb 18-22), this workshop has been postponed to Wed, Feb 27th. 

Workshop #4 of the Sandbox Discover program will focus on “Generating ideas – the power of brainstorming” or more precisely—the Ideate stage of the design thinking process.

Building on both the Empathize and Define stages, the Ideate stage encourages us to generate as many solutions / ideas as possible through focused and creative brainstorming. We naturally want to evaluate and defend each idea as they emerge but design thinking  challenges us to fight that urge. Encouraging wild ideas, deferring judgement, visualizing ideas, building on the ideas of others and going for tremendous quantity are just some of the tactics we’ll practice this week.

About the Sandbox Discover Program

The Sandbox Discover program is a free, extra-curricular program open to all students in any post-secondary degree/diploma program who want to learn more about innovation at its earliest stages. This is the messy and fun stage, where ideas emerge and are discarded at a rapid pace and failure is celebrated because it means insight was gained.
The skills and insights gained through the program are transferrable across disciplines and will allow you to bring an innovation mindset to everything from academic group projects, current and future workplaces or potential startups!
