Keith James, Ph.D.
Portland State University
“Creativity is an arbitrary harmony, an expected astonishment, a habitual revelation, a familiar surprise, a generous selfishness…..” George Prince
OBJECTIVES and FORMAT
This short course is focused on the following: the methods and strategies that psychologists and others have used to try to research influences on creativity; major forms and types of creativity; individual, group, and organizational factors that inhibit or promote creativity; the links between creativity, innovation and change; and influences on successful innovation and change in organizations and society. In addition, it includes review and some practice of strategies for promoting both personal creativity and creativity in groups, teams, and organizations. It exposes students to examples of creativity and innovation from a variety of cultures, eras, and fields. Course format includes lectures, demonstrations, discussions, and exercises.
Selected draft chapters from a book on the psychology of creativity that I am writing (James, K. Creativity, Innovation, Entrepreneurship: Fundamentals and Applications) will be the text for the course. A bound photocopy of that draft textbook will be made available for student use.
