Dear colleagues, The next teaching and learning conversation (TLC) free webinar will be facilitated by Lisa Day (Director of Studies, Online MBA, University of Liverpool) and Jeannie Holstein (Module Convenor Strategic Management MBA, University of Nottingham) titled "Lego for Creative Strategic Thinking with MBA Students" Lisa and Jeannie will share their experiences of using Lego to stimulate creative strategic thinking with MBA students. Having attended a workshop session run by Dr David Oliver from the University of Sydney Business School in 2015, Lisa and Jeannie were inspired to try out some ideas with their students. They will share some of the theory behind using Lego to encourage students to work through strategic problems in a way that is collaborative, reflective and creative. This TLC will be participative, providing opportunities to try a few things and not just listen to us. Lisa and Jeannie both have experience of running a taught classroom-based session(s) that lasts between 1 hour and 3 hours for about 5 to 25 MBA students and will share their experiences of running these classes and the lessons that we learned from putting David's ideas into practice. If you don't teach strategy or MBA students then you will still, we hope, pick up lots of ideas that you could adapt for other audiences.
