From the Speaker:
World problems and the need for human expertise to solve those problems demand more creativity. Opportunities abound for the individual who can integrate creative thinking skills with critical thinking skills. The creative imperative and the creative opportunity urge us to improve creativity education for students. We can help students become more creative, and as a result we can enhance their personal satisfaction and their abilities to solve the pressing problems of our times.
We are conducting research on how creativity enhancement occurs in college students (NSF: Litchfield, Price, and Goldberg) and have developed two classes: Creativity, Innovation, and Vision (How can I enhance my creativity?) and Advancing Creativity (How can I help others enhance their creativity?).
