Six Thinking Hats for Instructional Design
Gary Wong, Consultant, Canada

UPSIDE Learning has provided an interesting example of applying the six thinking hats for instructional design (link). The authors have chosen the following hat sequence: White, Black, Red, Green, Yellow, Blue.
In this case, a client has given them a course outline to consider under the White hat. Their approach is to initially judge under the Black hat and report their findings. Under the Red hat, a quick "gut check" is conducted. I envision this as a "Go/ No Go" decision point which conceivably is done with the client. This 3-hat sequence is often referred to as a Risk Assessment hat sequence.
If the client is on board, then a Green/Yellow/Blue Positive Ideas short hat sequence follows.

You do need a blue that is strong enough and an expert to facilitate the group.
