V2_Blind Thinking - Seeing the Blocks to Imagination

Critical and Creative Thinking begins with a flexible mind. To be imaginative we need to see things in new ways. This is a visual process via visualisation (minds-eye) and related capabilities. This course illustrates the predictable blocks that inhibit imagination in order to move past the blocks. This program plants the seeds for Critical Thinking. How we see influences what we see, and that influences what we look for.
