Changing Perceptions is an interactive workshop series open to students, staff and network partners aspiring to shape, share and develop ideas that have a positive impact on society, the economy and communities. Changing Perceptions also creates a culture of recognising team diversity and multi-disciplinary working. We intend to encourage curiosity, raise the level of debate and challenge students and staff to take action.
We believe that by leading groups through a problem-solving framework we can incubate their ideas and projects to the point where they can have a commercial or social impact. Hopefully both. The initiative fundamentally follows the design thinking approach and enables team-based problem finding and problem solving. Students are given tools that foster active listening, ideation, innovation and collaboration.
