Faculty engage young faculty in“ Innovation Coaching Boot Camp”。 I went straight to the leader after the meeting adjourned and told him about my distrust—— in my opinion， There's no way to teach innovation.。
If innovation can be taught， Then the person who teaches innovation is at least worth more than the person who goes。 Because the price of the final product is attributable to the price of the factors of production。 Innovative capacity is scarce in the population， The opportunity cost of teaching innovation is too high， rational choice It should be to start a business.。
Would Bill Gates have given up entrepreneurship back then to become an innovation coach and teach others how to start a Microsoft? Stock commentators get up early every day and run to the TV station to pontificate. If you're really capable of picking stocks, shouldn't you have a hundred thousand dollars under your belt and ride a crane to Antarctica?
I can't teach my students something I don't believe in myself.
The leader expressed understanding， But I was encouraged to give it a try。
break the ice
So on Wednesday night, I ran off to try it. Apart from 2 colleagues, all those who came were students they didn't know. Everyone was a bit formal at first.
Coach Yan makes the opening statement and speaks eloquently. He told us that everything that could be found on Baidu, he would not speak about.
This is an interesting reference.
We were all called from around the table to the open space to play a game. The game trains concentration and you have to be highly focused to avoid being eliminated. Everyone socially broke the ice and got to know each other. Then the numbers 1-5 are cycled and those who report the same number are put into groups.
Ms. Lin and I were assigned to the first group. There was one other boy and two girls in the same group.
Back in your seat.， Found a few extra sheets of paper and pencils on the table。 On the paper are neatly lined up various shapes。 The requirement given to us is to turn the graph into something concrete in the fastest way possible。 For example a circle， You can add a tail to make a balloon， Or draw eyes, nose and mouth.， Into a face。
There are 4 sheets of paper in total. The most done was 3 sheets.
Coach Yan told us that someone had done something particularly ingenious earlier - a curve that strung all the circles together to make a necklace!
ingenious！ Why didn't I think of that?？
The following session requires the selection of a group leader. The boy in our group drew 2 1/2 of them, so he logically became the group leader.
If the school gets blown up, then ......
If the car doesn't need to burn oil， or so……
If people live under the earth's crust, then ......
This is our next group exercise - "What if". One person comes up with a hypothetical scenario and the next person needs to come up with consequences based on the hypothesis. Whichever group can't pick it up, stop. The last group to stop won a 4-disc heart. It tickled us all to see it.
The next question is even more interesting， be called”Yes, and…” The previous person made the point， The latter cannot be refuted， And to add more detailed qualifications。
I want to get a cat.
Yes, and I want a white cat.
be， And I want a white cat with blue eyes.。
Yes, and I want a long whiskered blue-eyed white cat.
Test rounds， We found it hard to talk after one turn， Because I can't remember.！
To win.， I've changed my mind.。 We start by reading a book.。 Then say separately what's on the pages of the book。
But you can't repeat it, and it's not good to remember.
I looked down just in time to see the sheets of paper on top of the table with the graphics on them ......
I want to read a book.。
be， And I want to read a book where the first page is a triangle。
be， And I want to read a book where the first page is a triangle， The second page is a round book。
The observer next to us was unsure and advised us not to say anything so difficult to remember. We couldn't help but burst out laughing. Told him it wasn't hard to remember, but didn't say why.
Here comes the heart of it.。 Give each group the same task—— Designing a solution， Helping couples on campus。
Brainstorming, what a familiar term. I'm reminded of the famous book, The Wisdom of Groups. You have to be methodical to make the three stinkers outperform the wise men.
Coach Yan describes 2 different methods. One is silent, the other is heated.
One sheet of paper each for the former， write in a horizontal direction3 Solutions， Then it goes to the next person.， The next person gradually unfolds the previous solution。 shall not be overturned.， Not to be questioned。 Communicate only with pen and paper， No sound is allowed.。
