Reframing is a staged examination of a topic on a single sheet of paper to encourage critical and creative thinking around a subject / topic. This hands-on approach helps students and staff to visually map and capture ideas and is based on the work of Julia Reeve

Reframing can be used to develop ideas for projects, reports and presentations and is a useful tool when starting to explore ideas, research a topic, find relevant key words etc.

This workshop is hands-on and will take participants through the process of selecting and using a reframing tool and exploring possible uses and applications.
