Understanding Creativity - OLET2701

Year - 2019

Understanding Creativity is geared towards those actively seeking to learn new creative skills or assess and improve creative approaches to their life and work challenges. The course offers experience in the range of creativity you can develop - from everyday creative thinking and actions to deep creative practice using skills and discipline expertise. We begin by stepping through the creative process in workshop style learning sessions called creativegrounds. In these workshops you are guided towards choosing the right tools to design, construct, compose or produce creative outcomes for professional, personal or social interests. Together, your creative capacity will develop through a series of exercises designed to expand your comfort zone, not take you out of it. We will conclude by a group survey of project results.

Assessment
