Dr. Stevenson enjoys teaching the Social Responsibility course in the EMBA program, integrating current events into the study of the topic. He has been on the faculty at GGU since 1971, and has also been involved in facilitation at the Creative Problem Solving Institute (CPSI) of the Creative Education Foundation since then. His work with creative problem solving outside the classroom most recently has been with Johnson & Johnson’s subsidiary One Touch as they were innovating on their product design. Walt recently worked on a problem solving team for Visa as they explored product enhancements. He is a volunteer leader in the Facilitating Creative Leadership program—a six-level training program designed to develop exceptional facilitators—and has served as its director. His travels teaching creativity and facilitation have taken him to Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, American Samoa, Canada, China, Czech Republic, and Brazil. Dr. Stevenson traveled to Billund, Denmark, the international headquarters of the Lego Company, to become an approved Lego Serious Play™ facilitator, using Lego™ bricks as part of the facilitation process. He likes to spend some of his spare time watercolor painting, and most recently has started to make paintings with dyes on silk.
