Scaffolding is a well researched method to accelerate learning that has great potential application in creativity and innovation processes. Including scaffolding techniques in Creative Problem Solving (or Design Thinking/Agile/Lean) improves creative thinking, reveals unique combinations, and leads to more truly new and different ideas. Great educators have always scaffolded their students; it's time for innovators to do the same.

  • You will learn what Scaffolding is, the background, the concept, the need.
