CRE345H1: Evidence Based Approaches to Creativity


The seminar course pursues two goals. First, it provides an introduction to the latest scientific findings concerning creativity, by drawing on a broad range of scientific disciplines, such as psychology, neurobiology, sociology, anthropology, and education science. The topics include creative personality, the process of creation, as well as the sociocultural context of creativity. Second, it investigates various techniques that can help us learn to be more creative. This will involve discussions on how to choose one’s domain and field, be intrinsically motivated, how to collaborate, and how to brainstorm productively. Students will be given an opportunity to apply these techniques to specific fields of their choosing.
