Class 06: Four Creative Discovery Skills

We discussed flow through all-class and pairwork activities about how “flow” is related to creativity and input discovery skills. Then we reviewed the discovery skills and from the readings in pairs and the whole class as well. You reflected on what skills you are good at and what skills are somewhat new to you. Listening to your observations about yourself was interesting!
