NSW Education Standards Authority Completing V2_Blind Thinking - Seeing the Blocks to Imagination will contribute 3 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

ABOUT THIS COURSE

This course develops a fundamental understanding of the psychological barriers we put in front of ourselves that inhibit our ability to imagine different possibilities. The programme lays the foundation to develop Critical Thinking skills in a fun, visual and dynamic way. It threads Critical Thinking into Creative Thinking.

Teachers learn the Growth vs Fixed Mindset from a creative point of view as well as bias, illusion and neuroscientific mechanisms such as neuroplasticity. This course is designed to begin a process of awareness around creative blocks in order to ultimately move past them.
