2nd Annual University Learning and Teaching Showcase
Opening Session - Designing for CreativityThe Office of Arts & Cultural Programming opened this session with a short video highlighting the visiting artists they host through Peak Performances. The audience was then engaged in a brief exercise that had them reflect and share their answer to the question, "How would you introduce creativity in your discipline, or your courses?" The session ended with a video montage telling the story behind the origin of the Creative Thinking project and the resulting course development.
