Who is Dr. Donald J. Treffinger?
Dr. Donald J. Treffinger is the President and Director of the Center for Creative Learning, Sarasota, Florida, http://www.creativelearning.com/ and he and his colleagues have created a set of teacher-friendly creative and critical thinking tools that can be used for instruction and teacher training. You can see those creative and critical thinking tools at the top of this post. Dr. Treffinger has granted us permission to share these thinking tools in our blog. These thinking tools can be used in both face to face and virtual classrooms. When you combine face to face and virtual (online) learning it is called blended or hybrid learning.
In the next post we will share how the creative thinking tool, Force-Fitting, can be used by students and mentees in a blended learning classroom.
