ciow Session 2

I’m sorry about the mix-up with books this semester. Because not everyone will have been able to read or even get the book, we’ll be adapting the class schedule. This week’s class will have 3 parts:

Session 1 followup

Lets document the IDEO deep dive process as well as some other innovation techniques, including those that I mentioned (listed on the Session 1 page, Try to think especially about innovation processes or projects in which you have participated or in which you might like to participate, e.g., a course project.

Creativity with a capital “C”

I’d been looking at articles to replace the book I had assigned, but no article does the topic justice. So if you were able to acquire or borrow the book, read what you can; if not, at least read the summary I sent earlier in the week -- a web version is accessible on the Creativity with a Capital “C” topic page ( Creativity.cgi).

Also view Csikszentmihalyi's talk, " Creativity, fulfillment and flow" and consider the Discussion Questions and Discussion topics.

Rather than try to cover the topic comprehensively in 2 sessions, we’ll introduce it so that we can consider it more thoroughly over the next several weeks.

Improvisational Arts 

No assignments regarding this, other than to come with an open mind.
