As a summer session administrator, you are constantly challenged to come up with another, better programming or promotional idea. Thatês the secret to successful marketing and enrollment. But how do you find the better idea? This session begins with experiencing conditions that foster inspiration and then moves to exercises that help train your brain to think in new ways. Maximize your thinking to generate ideas that get results.
