About the Event

As researchers, we often narrow our observations to the types of evidence considered most appropriate in our given fields. But what do we miss by investigating through such a focused lens? What exists outside our scope that could ignite our curiosity? Further still, how do we learn to broaden our view?

Two of ATG’s consultants have created a workshop that guides participants through strategies to revive creativity by using shifts in perspective. By taking other viewpoints, researchers can ask better questions of themselves and their colleagues. In this Brown Bag, creators of ATG's Asking Better Questions workshop will share ideas and strategies used to prompt researchers to broaden their focused lenses. By asking better questions, researchers can increase their capacity for creating connections, concrete skills for collaborating, and tools to develop novel inquiries.
