Lateral thinking

Module Overview

Originated by Prof. Felicia Megret

Lateral thinking is solving problems through an indirect and creative approach, using reasoning that is not immediately obvious and involving ideas that may not be obtainable by using only traditional step-by-step logic. The term was born in 1967 by Edward de Bono. In this module we look at what lateral thinking is and how it can be helpful in problem solving. We explore idea-generating tools intended to break current thinking patterns.

We will explore

  • What is lateral thinking?
  • How can lateral thinking be helpful?
  • Using new problem solving tools
  • Let’s generate some ideas
  • Working together to solve problems

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts worksheet

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
