Course Objectives

As the course title implies, this course has been devised to help students of varying ages to explore, develop and apply creative thinking skills to both daily and life situations.  This course has been designed to be inspirational in nature, striving to create a proper start in the life long quest for thinking skills for study, work and living (instead of a one-off exercise or just another summer course).  It is the tutor's strong belief that it is our thoughts and thinking that created (a) this human world and (b) the quality, meaning and fulfillment of our own lives.  It is almost impossible to over-stress the importance of thinking and creativity in our life and living.  This course aims to give us a "reboot" in our past thinking systems for our own good.  The worlds of thinking facing all students are going to get a lot bigger after attending this course.


Course Outline

  • This course has been structured into 6 sessions, with each session individually themed and inter coordinated to guide the students through a fascinating and memorable journey in the quest for thinking techniques, experiences and demonstrations.

  • Content wise this course has been devised and substantiated with a wide array of thinking related theories, which have been repeatedly tried and tested by the tutor's three decades of planning, design and research experience.

  • In particular, the course design is well grounded as its design has drawn reference from original thinking principles such as the tutor's "get-pick-link" thinking trilogy, as well as the well-known "Tomlinson’s Equalizer" model in the field of educating talented children.

  • In summary, this course is well thought and well crafted, leveraging on the tutor's decades of thinking studies and professional consultancy practice, and therefore should prove to be relevant and useful for any students who are interested in improving their thinking for a better life and living.



Target Participants / Prerequisite
Telephone and/ or face-to-face interview is proposed to check out students’ interest and preference in course contents prior to course.
