This seminar will uncover ways of effective embedding simple heuristics of the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ) into existing engineering courses. Participants will learn a couple of simple TRIZ heuristics and also will find out:

  • why TRIZ heuristics suit the engineering profession the most;
  • the outcomes of usage of educational materials offered by the TRIZ Repository ( by educators in Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong;
  • how to choose a TRIZ heuristic that suits their courses;
  • how to engage students in learning TRIZ heuristics with fun.

Participants will also apply TRIZ heuristics to uncover the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle.
