Praxis Ideation Challenge Workshop III: Framing Contexts

Apr 12, 2021
|
3:00pm–5:00pm
Workshop/Seminar
Details

Einstein is to have said that approaching a problem in the same way and expecting a different result is the definition of madness.  Quite often the ‘trip’ to finding a naval way of problem-solving is by reconsidering the nature and scope of the problem itself.  Using tools including polarization, division (rename, relabel & recategorize), and random stimulation this session will examine strategies to identify problem entry points (wants, needs & gaps) to expand (restructure) attention areas and improve creative problem-solving skills.

This workshop will help participants look at ways of formulating the problem “Attention Area” to examine perspectives on how to reconsider and possibly restructure the problem space. Participants will work on selecting, narrowing, and analyzing problems. ​

Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrate different strategies for reframing and approaching a problem.
  • Critically analyze person-centric needs & Problems
  • Define approaches to Codifying a central problem and research question

Key Concepts:

  • Critical Thinking, Reframing, Problem-solving
  • Establish design requirements and success matrix
