The purpose of this experiential workshop is first to explore the subject of creativity and then to try out and explore different ways of thinking and practices that might help facilitate the generation of more ideas. We will also look closely at the connection between creativity and risk-taking and the great potential of this link. This course is for postdocs wanting to understand and expand their own creative minds.


Outcomes:

  • Reflect on the importance of continuing to cultivate creativity.
  • Explore ways of thinking and practices that help in the generation of ideas.
