The Myth of the Brainstorming Session

The Myth of the Brainstorming Session | education | Scoop.it

In the 1940s, advertising executive, Alex Osborn, was frustrated with his employees’ creative output and began experimenting with ways to improve it.

 

In 1953, Osborn published a book titled Applied Imagination, where he discussed how group brainstorming is a more efficient way to improve ideation compared to individual thought.

 

To have an effective brainstorming session, Osborn outlined that the group must:

 

Defer judgment (don’t get upset when people say bad ideas)Reach for quantity (come up with as many ideas as possible)

 

This sounds like simple criteria to follow but the challenge is actually orchestrating brainstorming sessions where these two principles are consistently put into practice.

The Future of Higher Education Looks Nothing Like the Present

The Future of Higher Education Looks Nothing Like the Present | education | Scoop.it
The first two years of a four-year college experience could be very different than they are now. During those early years, students might rely more heavily on online instruction outside of class, while doing more work on teams in class. Faculty could serve as educational coaches rather than instructors, and classwork could be more heavily combined with internships or service-learning experiences
