L&I 735 - Creativity (3)

The purpose of the course is to look at the role of creativity in social environments. Creativity is usually investigated from an individual differences perspective. Instead, this course will look at creativity as an environmental variable (i.e., factors in the educational environment which may influence creativity). Of utmost concern is the question: "What can we do to make our educational or business environments more conductive to creative and original thinking?" This environmental psychological approach will incorporate thinkers from the fields of psychology, education, and the arts.
