Russian State Vocational Pedagogical University Professor work with design students

From 9 - 12 September Liepaja University was hosting Professor from Russian State Vocational Pedagogical University - Maria Dremina. She was giving lectures to LiepU bachelor level study program "Design" students. During the week, she was giving practical classes about development of collaborative and creative thinking, means of the art therapy in professional activity of designers and others.

Professors says: "some things of what I have been speaking was known to them. But neurostyling gave them a quick and effective algorithm to “turn on” empathy to better understand their emotional feelings and recognize the hidden emotions of other people. The art therapy technique allowed us to reflect feelings through abstract images. The ability to generate new meanings through interaction with abstract images has increased the level of the internal freedom and creative thinking. Common work together also helped to students to develop their team works skills".

The stay of Maria Dremina at LiepU was financially supported by Erasmus+ program (teaching mobility).
