Programmes of study


Brainstorming is a very good way for a group of people to create lots of ideas and thoughts quickly. At the top of either a large sheet of paper on at the top of the white-board write down the nature of the problem. At this stage it is important not to write down solutions to the problem.

In lists underneath the problem one person writes down the words, phrases or comments provided by the group. As more suggestions are given they will spark off more ideas.
Create as many ideas as possible but do give yourself a time deadline to work to. It may take some time for creative ideas to emerge.

It is now time to sort out the ideas. Some of the ideas can be dismissed. Some may prove to be totally impractical. They may prove to be too expensive or the material may be totally impractical.
