About the workshop

The key to success in research is, first of all, being able to ask the right question. Being able to interpret the data, to see new patterns, to make links between the not-so-obvious associations are skills that are developed to provide new and creative answers to your research challenges. During this workshop we will begin to develop your ability to ask questions, to think outside the box, to see things differently and generate a wider range of possibilities.

We will use a range of techniques including group discussion, group activities and targeted exercises to develop your creative thinking and problem solving skills. Do come ready to take away ideas for working on your own research ideas, problems or challenges and be prepared to develop some surprising possibilities.

As a result of this workshop participants will:

  • know the first step to solving a problem is to ask the right question
