Characteristics of successful facilitation will be identified and practiced, and you will develop an awareness of your own strengths and areas for development.In this course, you will: This program is designed to provide the modules, framework and practice to help you train individuals and groups in the Creative Problem Solving Process.This course is designed for those who already know the CPS process in theory and are ready to put it into action as a facilitator.
In this highly interactive course, you will experience the modules of the CPSI Springboard program, have the opportunity to train others in these modules and receive feedback and coaching from your peers and experienced facilitators. Please note: Pre-work and on-site preparation will be required in order to “teach back” the course.
Right before the holidays, I said that you had better learn how to solve programming problems.
At the core of the Creative Education Foundation’s Creative Problem Solving Institute is its flagship Creative Problem Solving Program, which begins with Springboard to Creative Problem Solving.
This is the course we highly recommend for all first-time CPSI participants.
This time I am going to try and give you some good tools to enable you to get good at solving programming problems.
(Really algorithm type problems specifically.)When most programmers are given a programming problem in an interview, they make several key mistakes.
Learn through small- and large-group work, including round-robin sharing and show-and-tell exercises.
In this course, you will: Facilitation skills are central to the effective use of CPS, whether in formal meetings or informal brainstorming sessions.
I recommend that you solve the problem with at least three different inputs to make sure you really understand your solution and that it will work for more than one case.
I often use a Mathematical Induction approach if possible.
