NSW Education Standards Authority Completing V4_The CREATIVE/IDEATION Process will contribute 3 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 3.5.2 and 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

ABOUT THIS COURSE

Lost opportunities and lack of foresight can be traced back to a crisis of imagination. Imagination is a visual capability.

This course is an innovative approach to learning creativity; how to expand thoughts, make ideas visible and ultimately how to move from imagination into creativity in order to see new possibilities. It gives participants tangible strategies for activating ideas. It aligns the thinker with practice; from ideation, through incubation and into demonstration for realisation.
