This course is designed specifically for people who want to bring creativity and creative thinking skills into their work with learners – educators, youth leaders, administrators, etc. It is a fast track to a deliberate creativity process that will help you transform your work. You’ll be introduced to the Creative Problem Solving (CPS) Process, along with recent brain research on teaching, learning and curriculum design. These tools will enhance your abilities to teach creative thinking skills and produce a more interactive, motivating learning environment.

Your experienced creative education facilitators will use hands-on activities, real-world examples, and a variety of divergent and convergent thinking tools to give you a thorough, working knowledge of the CPS model, and its applications to your educational setting. In this course you will:
• Tap into your personal creativity so you can apply it in your lessons, meetings, projects, etc.
• Discover, explore and practice the CPS process.
• Practice applying creativity with learners.
• Adapt and design creativity experiences for the 21st century teaching environment through observation, participation, and discussion.
Pre-registration required.
