The basic principle ofthe method is“quantity generates quality”. By using this method students areencouraged and requested to participate actively avoiding the beaten path. Brain-storming facilitates exercising capabilities to critically analyse real situations, arandom association that allows discovering unpredictable sources of inspiration,and making decisions about choosing the most appropriate solutions. This way,creativity is practised and allows a person to express himself genuinely. It has abeneficial effect on interpersonal relationships among the group of students.The method’s steps:1. The theme is chosen and the task is announced;2. Students are asked to express as quickly, as concisely as possible all ideas asthey come to their mind in solving a problem situation. They can associate withthe ideas of their colleagues; they can take over, complete or transform theirideas. Any kind of criticism is prohibited, not to inhibit creative effort. Theprinciple governing activity is“quantity generates quality”;3. All ideas are recorded;4. Leave a few minutes to“settle”ideas that were given and received;5. The ideas issued are repeated, and students build criteria to assemble conceptsgiven by categories, and key words;15810Teaching Learning Methods

The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
