Class 03: Things That Block Creativity

Summary: We reviewed the Sawyer (2012) article and mainly had active conversations about the myths and grains of truth associated with creativity. I also gave a mini-lecture about Sawyer (2012) and other creativity researcher’s concepts in a PowerPoint slideshow. We then enjoyed the video below with reference to introducing us to things that block our creativity and how to build creative confidence. It is useful to remember to click the CC button on Youtube in the lower right-hand part of the screen to read the closed caption script in English to guide you along.
