This is the 2nd of five sessions for ‘Introduction to Collaborative Discussion,” an online course that the Interactivity Foundation is facilitating in partnership with the Diversity Relations Council at Leisure World in Silver Spring, Maryland. In this course, registered participants meet weekly online via Zoom. The five class discussions for this course are participatory, interactive, and additive—they build on the ideas discussed and developed in prior sessions by the participants.
In this 2nd session, participants will be introduced to and try out a couple exercises in “Creative Collaboration,” Module 2 of the Collaborative Discussion Toolkit. Creative Collaboration is the ability for a group to work together in ways that encourage seeing new possibilities. Our thinking can often be limited by unconscious constraints and conditioned patterns of thinking. Having habits and tools to unleash creativity can help groups create imaginative potential and harness productive energy in groups.
