Problem Solving with Integrative Thinking

Join us for a two-day problem solving challenge. In small teams, you’ll use Integrative Thinking to solve a real-world challenge for an organization that has no single, right answer. In this hands-on workshop, you will be guided by two facilitators through the Integrative Thinking process. You will then share your recommendations back to the organization.

Together, we’ll pull out best practices and look at ways you can bring Integrative Thinking, metacognition and problem solving into your classrooms and schools.

Whether you’re new to Integrative Thinking or have been using the tools for years, this program is for you.

As a participant, you will:

  • Apply the Integrative Thinking process to a real-world problem

  • Co-develop best practices

  • Explore how you might use the Integrative Thinking process in your own classroom and school

  • Brainstorm possible community partners you can approach to collaborate with

This program is co-facilitated with Rahim Essabhai. Rahim is a grade 12 Business Leadership teacher in the Toronto District School Board. In his course, students spend 6-8 weeks consulting to an organization using Integrative Thinking. Rahim won the 2016 Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence for this work.

Program Highlights

Real-World Problem Solving

In teams, you will be consulting to a real-life organization, facing a real problem with no right answer. They will both issue you the challenge and be there for your presentations.
