Shared Lunch: How to run an effective brain storming session

How to Run an Effective Brainstorming Session and Stimulate Creative Thinking
Written By 
A good brainstorming session allows you to harness the best ideas.

Holding a Brainstorming Session
State the question clearly so all the students can understand what we are trying to do/ design
Re explain it to new people as only a handful came to the discussion yesterday (week 1) 
Write it down and let people write their thoughts, even anonymously 
- Big piece of paper roll
-A3 paper
An effective brainstorming session will last anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes, and 30 minutes is usually ideal.
Assign a Group Leader for Free-Flowing, Creative Ideas and to keep encouraging other students to contribute
The most important rule in a brainstorming session is to avoid evaluating the ideas during the process. The focus is on quantity, not quality. 
The real keys to a successful brainstorming session are positive emotions, laughter, ridiculous ideas, and absolutely no criticism of any kind. The group leader needs to ensure that no one says anything that throws water on the ideas of anyone else. Again, creative ideas need to be as free-flowing as possible.
By practicing mindstorming and brainstorming on a regular basis, you can unleash a torrent of ideas that will enable you to accomplish your goals faster than you ever believed possible. Today, in the information age, ideas are the most valuable tools of production. And since your ability to generate innovative, effective, usable ideas is virtually unlimited, your future is unlimited as well.
Second, make it a game to see how many ideas the group can generate within a specific time period. Focus on quantity, not quality.
