Creativity is the great buzz-word and growth industry of our times. Perceived as a desirable attribute, integral to notions of individual development and expression, social and cultural success and even economic survival, it has become the province of potentially all people in a growing range of domains. Our paradigms for creativity may have once been derived from the arts and sciences, but increasingly creativity is pertinent to a growing number of disciplines including education, business and economics. Moreover, many of Australia's leading universities have identified creativity and innovation as key graduate attributes.
This unit will introduce significant theories of creativity from across a variety of disciplines. Students will be exposed to the creative processes of practitioners drawn from a range of fields and will be expected to identify, articulate and critically reflect on their own creativity.
