Creativity Can Be Taught: An Interactive Workshop

Creativity means many things to many people. Barr (2018) states “creativity is one of those traits that people seem to have an intrinsic understanding of, but if you actually ask them to define it, they get tripped up” This leads one to wonder, “can creativity be taught?” Surprisingly, psychological research affirms that it can (Pringle, 2020). Likewise, Maya Angela famously asserts, “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have”. This session, includes a summary of relevant research and interactive exercises that enable participants to not only explore their own notions of creativity but also to engage in “hands-on” activities that they can use to develop their own creativity, and to help others do the same.
