Bob McEwen led the session essentially around a theme of thinking and problem solving.
Some of the tasks were theoretical thinking problems and Bob also introduced some of a practical nature .Working in small groups we began to use (initially subconsciously) some of the keys to problem solving including:
Communication: Actively listening to each other: Analysing the problem/situation
Creativity: Dependability: Decision making and the beginning of Team-building
Overall it was an enjoyable, active and fun learning session.
We then watched a short video and a PowerPoint about Brackenhurst College which is now part of Nottingham Trent University. We are making a visit to Brackenhurst on July 21st for a tour a talk and lunch.
Next Meeting Friday 15th June 10.am
John Tedstone will be discussing Pollution with a focus on water, rivers and the sea.
