Active Teaching and Learning (3) Think like deBono (Online, March 2023)

FESS is offering a series of three interactive standalone online workshops in the thematic area of Active Teaching and Learning, facilitated by Miriam O’ Donoghue. This is session three of a series of three interactive standalone workshops. Participants may attend one or more of these workshops.

CPD Theme: Think like deBono
Edward deBono, the originator of the term Lateral Thinking, dedicated his life to inspiring, encouraging and enabling others to be better and more creative thinkers by breaking old patterns and creating new ones.
Lateral Thinking is a structured approach for thinking differently and exploring viewpoints and understanding.

This workshop explores some of Edward de Bonos quick and easy to use thinking tools called the CoRT tools. These help to direct thinking, support creative thinking and structure evaluative thinking.

The easy-to-use tools can support thinking in any situation or context with minimal set up e.g., in the classroom with students, in staff meetings, consultations etc.

During the workshop we will:

  • explore a range of deBonos CoRT tools
    • practice using the tools in groups
    • understand how the tools can support a broader and more in-depth exploration of a topic, scenario, problem / challenge.

Materials needed: Participants need to bring a few sheets of paper and pen to the session.

The target audience for this event is: All FET staff members, including teachers, tutors, trainers, instructors and those in a co-ordination and/or quality assurance role.

Facilitation: This event will be facilitated by Miriam O’Donoghue. Miriam is an independent facilitator, trainer and consultant with a strong background and experience of working in Education both nationally and internationally that includes teaching, lecturing and training roles at Primary, Post-primary, Further Education and Training, and Higher Education (Teacher Education) levels. Miriam has also held senior management roles in Curriculum Development, Professional Development and Education Support Services.
