CS 4510 - Perspectives in Creativity


This course is designed to deepen their understanding of creativity and utilize newly learned insights to enhance their creative process as well as stimulate the creative process of others. Students develop an awareness of factors that stimulate or inhibit their own creative process and apply what they learn in an area of vital importance to them. Tapping into creativity is increasingly important for both individuals and society. The challenge of living in a world that is complex and changes at an increasing speed challenges all of us to develop our unique abilities. Creativity is defined here as "the production of relevant and effective novelty" (Cropley, 1999). What is effective varies in different fields and circumstances. There is a deep important need for new and effective answers in many different areas of our culture, our work, and everyday life. Our survival as a species will require answers to new and challenging problems involving both individual and international relationships, ecology, education, health, the arts, population growth, and the economy. This course is designed to deepen their understanding of creativity and utilize newly learned insights to enhance their creative process as well as stimulate the creative process of others.
