EDUG-639: Creativity

Class Program
Credits 3
Instructional Method

Creativity has proven to be one of the most elusive of psychological concepts. This course will examine several conceptually different ways of defining creativity, along with attempts to describe the characteristics of the creative individual. Creative production and how you get there - the creative process - will also be considered along with the three major approaches for enhancing creative production. Students will learn not only the basic concepts and procedures that make up these approaches, but will have an opportunity to put them into practice in three group simulation experiences as well. A discussion of the environmental considerations that contribute to creativity will round out the course.
