Educational Resources

This web repository of TRIZ materials will contain educational materials to help academics in introducing simple TRIZ heuristics to their students. It will also offer students with short videos, simple examples and exercises that students can study on their own. The list of TRIZ heuristics that will be covered by this web repository can be found in Table 1 of the paper titled: “TRIZ Education: Victories, Defeats and Challenges” (Download).

At the moment educational materials are available for the following heuristics:

To view/download these materials, please go to the 'Tools of TRIZ’ tab and choose the appropriate heuristic from the drop down menu.

As at February 2018, the repository offers educational materials for the six TRIZ heuristics that are listed in Table 1 of the abovementioned paper as suiting undergraduate students as well as for the tool of Situation Analysis. By the end of 2019 the repository will be appended with another five heuristics – that suiting postgraduate students. Please note that materials offered by this repository are intended for usage by university academics and students and are offered under the Creative Commons Licence.

It would be advantageous for any educator and student to devote some time and to read a few papers that are devoted to the outcomes of introduction of TRIZ heuristics to engineering students at numerous universities all over the world. The outlines of some of these papers are provided below.

Please study the 'Edisons 21: Teaching and Learning Mind Map' (Download) before you start teaching or learning TRIZ heuristics.
