Workshop Description:
The positive impact of feedback within the team on creativity is indicated in previous studies. To further explore effective feedback leading to creativity, we compare regular feedback and feedback using the feedback card in this workshop.

Feedback card is designed for the teams to use during the ideation mode of design thinking to diverge ideas the individual members generated. Perspectives to feedback are described on each card. By offering feedback from diverse perspectives, we seek the teams to deeply understand each other's idea and accept it. The figure below shows the design of the method, which supports the multi-disciplinary participants to feedback systematically. Before starting the feedback inside the team, we guide important attitudes when giving feedback. The cards support the person to give feedback (feedbacker) on 'how' to communicate what they felt or thought listening to the idea. The first card encourages positive feedback and the second card encourages asking questions instead of giving one-sided comments. The third, fourth, and fifth cards are used to broaden the ideas from time, spatial and semantic approaches, which are the systematic approaches.
