From divergent thinking to convergent solutions: Including creative thinking in your research


Montreal Neurological Institute de Grandpré Communications Centre, 3801 rue University, Montreal, QC, H3A 2B4, CA

Why is creative thinking important in the research process? How can artistic activities help us to become better scientists?

In this workshop facilitated by the Convergence Initiative, you will explore the artistic process through interactive exercises to scramble the "one problem focus" and bring your creativity up front. You will learn practical strategies that can help you multitask, solve complex problems, and generate new ideas in your current project and future career .

Refreshments will be provided.


Hosted by the Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives initiative at McGill University
