800715 Creativity Training

Lecturer: Johann Gatt, 2 semester hours / 2.5 ECTS

Course Language: English


While most people would not describe themselves as "creative", still, they are required to solve problems creatively, to generate new ideas on a regular basis and to practice thinking "outside the box". Contrary to general belief, these skills can be trained. This course introduces students to a number of techniques that will open up their creative potential (systematic brainstorming, divergent and lateral thinking, creative problem solving, creativity and group dynamics …).



800716 Strategic Communication Skills

Lecturer: Johann Gatt, 2 semester hours / 2.5 ECTS

Course Language: English


Successful interaction with people frequently requires the skill to influence their attitudes, emotions, thoughts and behavioral patterns. Making people "see your point and agree to it" requires solid knowledge of how those patterns work and how they can be changed. Students will be introduced to the possibilities offered by mindsetting, persuasion techniques, self-fulfilling prophesies, context framing, attention getters and expectation management.
