I teach the study of creativity and problem solving.  We use the Crative Problem Solving Thinking Skills Model which requires divergent and convergent thinking skills in each process step.  Mind-Tools provides additional explanation of many of the tools we use to stimulate divergent and convergent thinking.  Students find it helpful to explore these tools in different contexts.

Technical Remarks:

This site is helpful also to business clients who often aren't looking for an academic explanation, just a way of working toward a solution.  The site is easy to use and searchable.

This collection defines and provides examples of strategies that can be applied to situations requiring critical thinking. I used the Affinity Diagrams in the Problem Solving section to help students organize information for writing assignments in a Composition I course.
