How to Have Great Ideas In-Person
COVID-19 forced us to rethink many of the ways we traditionally worked. In many cases, it was a pressure cooker that helped us come up with some very creative new ideas for services and programs. But do we really need a pandemic to prompt us in this direction? Creative thinking is a process for generating new ideas and it’s a skill that can be honed through practice. This workshop will give participants background in creative thinking, a number of activities to practice getting our brains thinking creatively, and some practical tips to continue the process after the workshop ends. Come for a fun, engaging, and relevant workshop!
Will this Workshop be Recorded? Yes, this workshop will be recorded and will be available for viewing on the MLS Vimeo Page.
Intended Audience: This workshop is appropriate for library staff at any level or position.
