Class 07: Creativity & Asking Good Questions
Summary: Before the Golden Week holiday, we spoke about how observation leads to innovation, especially working together in teams rather than working alone. I also showed some samples of the observation projects that other students have done in previous years. Questions help us reflect as we observe creativity and innovation ideas and possibilities. You discussed both readings in breakout rooms. Finally, you reflected on your upcoming projects.
