Incorporating creativity into teaching means giving students the opportunity to learn a range of creative techniques and to come up with their own solutions in a very small amount of time. It also enables them to improve their teamwork skills, as well as strengthen their listening skills, their organizational skills and their ability to adapt to different situations.

This is why The Innovation Factory has introduced a new “Creativity Course”, which allows research professors to experiment with creativity tools. Participants will learn how to transform their course format through a series of discovery sessions and practical exercises.

  • Dates: from March 9 to May 27, 2021
  • Location: The Pre-Innovation Factory, 28/30, Avenue Gaston Berger, 69100 Villeurbanne (depending on the health regulations, the workshops may be held online)
