Description

Overview

As an adult educator, you must be innovative in your lessons plans and creative in your delivery in order to stay relevant with the millenniums in this disruptive VUCA world.

Leonardo da Vinci is reputedly the world’s most creative person. The epitome of the Renaissance, Leonard was ideal polymath – artist, stage designer, physician, anatomist, scientist, musician, physicist, mathematician, architect, geographer, geologist, defence strategist and engineer. Amongst others, he painted The Last Supper, Virgin of the Rocks and St John the Baptist. Thinking as a defense strategist, Leonardo invented the tank, the giant catapult, diving suit and flying machines. As an engineer, he drained marshes, drew maps and designed canal systems. Using his anatomical skills, he drew the heart, the lungs and the Vitruvian man. His notebooks are priceless and his inventions awesome.

His Mona Lisa, at Louvre, is the most admired and secured painting in the world. It’s priceless. And no one know who’s the real Mona Liza.

Although there is diversity in his pursuits, at the core is fusion of Arts and Science – a systematic body of knowledge verified by experiences based on natural laws.

Can you too be innovative as an adult educator? Can you embed creative activities into your workshops? Borrowing from Leonardo da Vinci, creative thinking skills can be taught and nurtured in the CET industry. In this informative talk, you’ll experience how to fully utilise your whole brain, be a curious learner and embrace ambiguity. This will keep you staying abreast in your journey to be an adult educator.
