Biomedical device design discovery team approach to teaching physiology to undergraduate bioengineering students. (1/131)

Teaching effectiveness is enhanced by generating student enthusiasm, by using active learning techniques, and by convincing students of the value of acquiring knowledge in the area of study. We have employed a technique to teach physiology to bioengineering students that couples students' enthusiasm for their chosen field, bioengineering, with an active learning process in which students are asked to design a biomedical device to enhance, replace, or create a new cellular or organ system function. Each assignment is designed with specific constraints that serve to direct students' attention to specific areas of study and that require students to create original designs. Preventing students from using existing designs spurred student invention and enthusiasm for the projects. Students were divided into groups or "design discovery teams" as might be done in a biomedical device industry setting. Students then researched the physiological issues that would need to be addressed to produce an acceptable design. Groups met with faculty to brainstorm and to obtain approval for their general design concepts before proceeding. Students then presented their designs to the instructors in a structured, written outline form and to the class as a 10-minute oral presentation. Grades were based on the outline, oral presentation, and peer evaluations (group members anonymously rated contributions of other members of their team). We believe that this approach succeeded in generating enthusiasm for learning physiology by allowing the students to think creatively in their chosen field of study and that it has resulted in students developing a more thorough understanding of difficult physiological concepts than would have been achieved with a traditional didactic lecture approach.  (+info)

Functional correlates of musical and visual ability in frontotemporal dementia. (2/131)

BACKGROUND: The emergence of new skills in the setting of dementia suggests that loss of function in one brain area can release new functions elsewhere. AIMS: To characterise 12 patients with frontotemporal dementia (FTD) who acquired, or sustained, new musical or visual abilities despite progression of their dementia. METHOD: Twelve patients with FTD who acquired or maintained musical or artistic ability were compared with 46 patients with FTD in whom new or sustained ability was absent. RESULTS: The group with musical or visual ability performed better on visual, but worse on verbal tasks than did the other patients with FTD. Nine had asymmetrical left anterior dysfunction. Nine showed the temporal lobe variant of FTD. CONCLUSION: Loss of function in the left anterior temporal lobe may lead to facilitation of artistic or musical skills. Patients with the left-sided temporal lobe variant of FTD offer an unexpected window into the neurological mediation of visual and musical talents.  (+info)

Assets-oriented community assessment. (3/131)

Determining how to promote community health requires that community health workers first assess where the community stands. The authors maintain that Healthy Communities initiatives are better served by assets-oriented assessment methods than by standard "problem-focused" or "needs-based" approaches. An assets orientation allows community members to identify, support, and mobilize existing community resources to create a shared vision of change, and encourages greater creativity when community members do address problems and obstacles.  (+info)

Eliminating health disparities among minority women: a report on conference workshop process and outcomes. (4/131)

A national conference convened in May 2001 explored health disparities among minority women. It included 5 one-hour workshops that randomly assigned each participant to 1 of 4 groups. Groups generated recommendations on conference topics and from these identified priority recommendations. Trained facilitators guided groups through brainstorming and weighted voting processes; individual recommendations were submitted in writing. Participants generated 598 recommendations, 71 of them voted as priorities; these were analyzed to capture participants' "messages." Central themes focused on access issues and cultural incompetence as deterrents to the elimination of health disparities and on education, funding, and community-based, community-driven research as mechanisms for change. Strategies for change included reinventing or expanding the role of minority communities and changing health care itself and "how" it does its work. The essential element in all recommendations was community leadership and control.  (+info)

The use of brainstorming for teaching human anatomy. (5/131)

Interactive teaching techniques have been used mainly in clinical teaching, with little attention given to their use in basic science teaching. With the aim of partially filling this gap, this study outlines an interactive approach to teaching anatomy based on the use of "brainstorming." The results of the students' critique of the teaching techniques are also included. Seventy-five students from the first-year nursing curriculum were tested by a structured questionnaire after three brainstorming sessions. The overall response to these sessions was very positive, indicating that students perceived this interactive technique as both interesting and useful. Furthermore, this approach may provide a useful strategy when learning the clinical courses of the upcoming academic years.  (+info)

Factors of home dream recall: a structural equation model. (6/131)

Previous research has indicated that personality factors such as openness to experience, creativity, visual memory, attitude toward dreams, and sleep behavior is related to home dream recall frequency (DRF). However, a study investigating all areas simultaneously within one sample in order to determine the percentage of variance explained by all variables and to take intercorrelations between the influencing factors into account has not been performed till now. The present study with 444 participants fills this gap. Using several indicators for each of the variables mentioned above, a structural equation model was tested. Although the model fit was satisfying, the four factors which were significantly related to DRF: personality (openness to experience, thin boundaries, absorption), creativity, nocturnal awakenings, and attitude toward dreams, explained only 8.4% of the total variance. As this value is considerably lower than those of studies investigating a single influencing factor and using similar measurement instruments in similar samples, one might speculate about possible expectancy effects in these previous studies, an effect which has been demonstrated for DRF in the laboratory setting. In addition, the small percentage of explained variance of each single factors (<3%) may indicate that other, in this study unmeasured, variables such as sleep duration (state aspect), introspection, and cognitive functioning immediately upon awakening (sleep inertia) show substantial covariance with the interindividual differences in DRF. Future studies should focus on longitudinal aspects in order to differentiate between state versus trait factors (although methodologic issues, e.g. the effect of the measurement technique on DRF itself, have to be clarified) and investigate additional variables which might be associated with DRF (see above).  (+info)

Creative problem solving and social cooperation of effective physical therapy practice: a pioneer study and overview. (7/131)

Action research (AR) has an important role to play in educating physical therapists. Increasing efforts should be encouraged to instigate AR programs in physical therapy practice and clinical education. Such programs commonly require considerable effort and understanding by clinical instructors, and require adoption of new educational methods. AR programs can lead physical therapists and clinicians to be more questioning and reflective in evaluating practical questions regarding patient therapy and education. The purpose of this article is to educate the readers on the importance of AR and to provide a few relevant references on that topic. A specific study is described in this paper in which physical therapy clinical instructors participated in a structured workshop designed to demonstrate the values of AR and how such values can be incorporated in teaching their students. AR can lead to improved therapist-patient interaction and help solve specific practical problems arising during therapy sessions.  (+info)

Socioeconomic position in early life, birth weight, childhood cognitive function, and adult mortality. A longitudinal study of Danish men born in 1953. (8/131)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relation between socioeconomic position in early life and mortality in young adulthood, taking birth weight and childhood cognitive function into account. DESIGN: A longitudinal study with record linkage to the Civil Registration System and Cause of Death Registry. The data were analysed using Cox regression. SETTING: The metropolitan area of Copenhagen, Denmark. SUBJECTS: 7493 male singletons born in 1953, who completed a questionnaire with various cognitive measures, in school at age 12 years, and for whom birth certificates with data on birth and parental characteristics had been traced manually in 1965. This population was followed up from April 1968 to January 2002 for information on mortality. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Mortality from all causes, cardiovascular diseases, and violent deaths. RESULTS: Men whose fathers were working class or of unknown social class at time of birth had higher mortality rates compared with those whose fathers were high/middle class: hazard ratio 1.39 (95% CI 1.15 to 1.67) and 2.04 (95% CI 1.48 to 2.83) respectively. Birth weight and childhood cognitive function were both related to father's social class and inversely associated with all cause mortality. The association between father's social class and mortality attenuated (HR(working class)1.30 (1.08 to 1.56); HR(unknown class)1.81 (1.30 to 2.52)) after control for birth weight and cognitive function. Mortality from cardiovascular diseases and violent deaths was also significantly higher among men with fathers from the lower social classes. CONCLUSION: The inverse association between father's social class at time of birth and early adult mortality remains, however somewhat attenuated, after adjustment for birth weight and cognitive function.  (+info)

Creativity is the hallmark of human cognition, yet scientific understanding of creative processes is limited. However, there is increasing interest in revealing the neural correlates of human creativity. Though many of these studies, pioneering in nature, help demystification of creativity, but the field is still dominated by popular beliefs in associating creativity with right brain thinking, divergent thinking, altered states and so on (Dietrich and Kanso, 2010) . In this article, we discuss a computational framework for creativity based on Baars global workspace theory (Baars, 1988) enhanced with mechanisms based on information theory. Next we propose a neurocognitive architecture of creativity with a strong focus on various facets (i.e., unconscious thought theory, mind wandering, spontaneous brain states) of un/pre-conscious brain responses. Our principal argument is that pre-conscious creativity happens prior to conscious creativity happens prior to conscious creativity and the proposed

A simple but accurate review on this new Human-Computer Interactions (HCI) angle for promoting creativity has been written by Todd Lubart, an invitation full of creative ideas to develop further this new field. Groupware and other Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW) platforms are now the stage of Network Creativity on the web or on other private networks. These tools have made more obvious the existence of a more connective, cooperative and collective nature of creativity rather than the prevailing individual one. Creativity Research on Global Virtual Teams is showing that the creative process is affected by the national identities, cognitive and conative profiles, anonymous interactions at times and many other factors affecting the teams members, depending on the early or later stages of the cooperative creative process. They are also showing how NGOs cross-cultural virtual teams innovation in Africa would also benefit from the pooling of best global practices online. Such tools ...
Nonaka, who examined several successful Japanese companies, similarly saw creativity and knowledge creation as being important to the success of organizations.[165] In particular, he emphasized the role that tacit knowledge has to play in the creative process. In business, originality is not enough. The idea must also be appropriate-useful and actionable.[166][167] Creative competitive intelligence is a new solution to solve this problem. According to Reijo Siltala it links creativity to innovation process and competitive intelligence to creative workers. Creativity can be encouraged in people and professionals and in the workplace. It is essential for innovation, and is a factor affecting economic growth and businesses. In 2013, the sociologist Silvia Leal Martín, using the Innova 3DX method, suggested measuring the various parameters that encourage creativity and innovation: corporate culture, work environment, leadership and management, creativity, self-esteem and optimism, locus of control ...
When you think of the term creativity, what do you think of? Maybe you think of drawing or painting. Maybe its being creative in the kitchen and coming up with new recipes. The concept of creativity can mean different things to different people. In Educational Psychology, Anita Woolfolk (2013) defines the term creativity as the ability to produce work that is original, but still appropriate and useful (p.339). In the world of teaching, how can we encourage our students to think creatively and be critical thinkers, but also perform the tasks they are required to perform? This may be a problem for many educators. Woolfolk and others (2013) suggests that creativity is important for an individuals psychological, physical, social, and career success (p.342). Therefore, it is important that we try to foster and develop a childs creativity and critical thinking skills ...
The study of creativity in design has tended to emphasize its value and location in the individual designer as part of a statistically outlying population rather than as a normal characteristic of an entire population. Theories of creativity have generally stressed either its mysterious, gift-like qualities to an individual or as a constructed relationship between consumer and designer. This article, in developing a third view of creativity in design as a normal phenomenon, describes a study of 1038 student design assignments obtained from a distance-learning course in Design Thinking. The article shows how normal distributions of design outputs can result from a large population following a structured design process. We argue that the creativity displayed is a natural result of the grammar of that process. Seen in this way creativity becomes less of an individual gift to a select minority, as generally understood, but an everyday occurrence to problems of design.. ...
Although the importance of creativity in design science research projects has been widely acknowledged, efforts to facilitate this creativity while ensuring rigor, have been largely overlooked. This paper presents a more thorough understanding of creativity in design science research, balancing it with scientific rigor and addressing practical problems.

Why is creativity important in everyday life? It is because it makes life infinitely interesting and fulfilling.. Creativity is a way of living life that embraces originality and makes unique connections between seemingly disparate ideas. Creativity is about living life as a journey into seeing and communicating the extra-ordinariness of the simplest, most every day acts.. We often think about creativity as making something, but in fact the root meaning of the word means to grow. When we are creative we feel as if the world and all that is in it is vibrantly alive. Creativitys by-products are some of the major achievements of civilization-from the invention of the wheel to Mozarts sonatas.. Human beings are essentially born creative-from infancy on we find innovative ways to negotiate life. The most creative people find ways around obstacles because they see them not just as roadblocks but also as opportunities. Creativity expands our perceptions and along with expanded perceptions come new ...

This paper presents a model of applied creativity which identifies the cognitive processes involved, and shows how they are related. Previous concepts of cognition, intelligence and learning are integrated with a number of significant themes in creativity research, and their relationships to the proposed model are discussed. Knowledge apprehension and knowledge utilization are identified as two bi-polar dimensions of cognitive activity involved in creative thinking. These two dimensions form the basis for a dynamic model of applied creativity, which identifies four distinct and successive stages of the creative process called generation, conceptualization, optimization, and implementation. Examples of how the model has been applied in organizational settings are provided, explaining how and why the theory works. Implications are discussed.. < Return to List ...
Explaining Creativity is an accessible introduction to the latest scientific research on creativity. The book summarizes and integrates a broad range of research in psychology and related scientific fields. In the last 40 years, psychologists, anthropologists, and sociologists have devoted increased attention to creativity; we now know more about creativity than at any point in history.
This panel will discuss group processes that promote social creativity in science, engineering, arts, and humanities. We will offer positive and negative examples of social creativity projects, while suggesting research directions for dramatically increased social participation. The goal is to develop strategies that would expand resources and opportunities for research and education in social creativity. This requires our community to develop a unified position, then reach out to national science funding agencies, while building the case for the importance of this topic beyond our own community. How can social creativity, collaborative discovery, distributed innovation, and collective intelligence be framed as an international priority to cope with the problems of the 21st century and how can we identify a clear set of research challenges? The theme of technology-mediated social participation is outlined in the white paper for a National Initiative for Social Participation ...
Thats the eternal question. Although there have been no studies to link BP and creativity, we all know that it is.

Both the rational traditions of mathematical thinking and computational thinking as well as the open and sometimes subjective approaches in design thinking need lateral or creative thinking. Creative problem solving has been seen as a central skill of engineers throughout history, even if there is no consesus on what constitutes creative thinking. As school historically leaves little room for creativity in places other than art, the expectations of our students are shaped accordingly. We try to break this association with the context of artistic practice by exploring unifying characteristics of creativity across all fields. Based on this discussion we show factors that stimulate or hinder creativity, as well as the areas of informatics where creativity needs to be given room to emerge. For example, many engineers pride themselves of a quick grasp of feasibility when presented with an idea. While this is certainly a useful skill in some situations, it also has the power to quickly shut down ...
Creativity often involves the development of original ideas that are useful or influential. Most research and writing on creativity has focused on individual creativity. However, with the information explosion and growing necessity of specialisation, the development of innovations will increasingly require group interaction at some stage of the process. Most organisations and much of the scientific process now rely on work of teams with diverse skills and knowledge.
Creativity and language are deeply connected human abilities, according to linguist Harry van der Hulst, Skidmore s new distinguished visiting fellow in the arts and sciences. The College s fourth visiting scholar supported by a Henry Luce Foundation grant to explore scientific and artistic creativity, van der Hulst asserts, Language is inherently creative: there are aspects of creativity in the sentences we produce and in the things we discuss spontaneously.. This semester van der Hulst is giving a series of public lectures entitled Creativity and Language. Although his specialty is phonology which he describes as the study of the perceivable form of language, spoken or signed his lectures will also cover the nature of sign languages; the evolutionary emergence of the sound systems of language; language acquisition, including what language skills are inborn and what aspects of language must be learned; and ways in which different languages arise.

Introduction and orientation. The South African Norms and Standards for Teacher Education (Department of Education, (2000:15-16), Curriculum 2005, the Outcomes-Based curriculum that was implemented in South African schools from 1997 and its revisions since then, place emphasis on creative thinking within an academic milieu. The Norms and Standards for Educators (SA, 27/1996), requires that teachers must be fluent (consider a range of possibilities for action), encourage and model creative thinking (create a learning environment in which critical and creative thinking is encouraged and adapt to change and unforeseen circumstances), be original (design original learning programmes) and flexible and able to elaborate (adapting learning programmes so that they are appropriate for the context in which teaching will occur). Compared to what literature reveals regarding creative thinking in an academic milieu, the policy requirements augur well with the views of Hunter, Bedell and Mumford ...

Researchers at the University of Michigan and Eckerd College also found that ADHD individuals preferred different thinking styles. They like generating ideas, but are not good about completing the tasks.. Lead author Holly White, an assistant professor of psychology at Eckerd, and Priti Shah, an associate professor at U-M, replicated their study from 2006, and those results found that ADHD individuals show better performance on standardized creativity tests.. Previous research regarding individuals with ADHD focused on laboratory measures of creativity.. We knew that ADHD individuals did better at laboratory measures of divergent thinking, but we didnt know if that would translate to real-life achievement. The current study suggests that it does, Shah said.. Divergent thinking involves generating several possible solutions to a problem..

The way in which different societies have formulated the concept of creativity has changed throughout history, as has the term creativity itself. The ancient Greeks, who believed that the muses were the source of all inspiration, actually had no terms corresponding to to create or creator. The expression poiein (to make) sufficed. They believed that the inspiration for originality came from the gods and even invented heavenly creatures - the Muses - as supervisors of human creativity. According to Plato, Socrates taught that inspired thoughts originate with the gods; ideas spring forth not when a person is rational, but when someone is beside himself, when bereft of his senses. Since the gods took away reason before bestowing the gift of inspiration, thinking might actually prevent the reception of divinely inspired revelations. The word inspiration is based on a Greek word meaning the God within. The poet was seen as making new things-bringing to life a new world-while the ...

Debbie Fourth. Do you ever wonder what makes one child so creative while another is so inhibited? Why, for example, does Alex come up with such thought-provoking questions and write such silly poems, while Mike never veers from the conventional, safe paths that are tried and true?. Studies have shown that parents attitudes toward creativity have a lot to do with it. Support, freedom, and an atmosphere rich in humor are the right stuff for producing a creative person says Teresa Amabile author of Growing Up.. Creative. Parents do not have to be outstandingly creative to have children who are. But parents who want to encourage creativity will have to work at it and show self-restraint.. Amabile suggests showing restraint in the following creativity killers:. *Evaluation: Parents who always keep track of how and what their children are doing make the kids feel like they are always being graded-even if parents are generous with praise..

Yesterday, I went out into a summer field and was stunned once more by the immense creativity that surrounds us. What an amazing variety of trees, grasses, scents, and birdsong! The wildflowers a riot of color! It is easy to forget this glory as we reel from the many disasters in our world. Rather than awe, we may feel helpless, frustrated, or afraid. Surely, we need to make room for these feelings. But the sheer wonder of existence is that each of us also shares in the vast creativity of the universe. It is our inheritance, and the kind of creativity that is most needed in our time. Every one of us has an inborn gift to bring to the world. It may not be fancy. But it is uniquely ours. We may be completely unaware of what our gift is; it can be different from anything weve ever done. Still, were more likely to learn about it when were far from the cultures noisy demands for attention and undistracted by a mind full of thoughts: when were in a field, in a forest, or on the beach, simply ...
Dance improvisation is the process of spontaneously creating movement. Development of improvised movement material is facilitated through a variety of creative explorations including body mapping through levels, shape and dynamics schema. Improvisation is a free, seemingly unstructured, less technically strict and impulsive form that draws inspiration from everyday dance practices and influences. It is a movement technique that is capable of evoking dramatic and thought-provoking content just as well as more codified western dance techniques such as ballet and non-western movement forms. Dance improvisation is not only about creating new movement but is also defined as freeing the body from habitual movement patterns (see Postmodern dance and Judson Dance Theater). Dancer and singer Michael Jackson combined improvisation in both of those definitions, insisting that he had interest in performing a dance to Billie Jean only if he could do it a new way each time. A lot of improvisation is focused ...
I found Creativity, Inc. to be among the very best books on innovation I have ever read. And, I definitely found it to be by far THE most thoughtful and deep book ever written by a practitioner on the topic of innovation. It sets a completely new standard for what a leadership book on innovation should be about. It was refreshingly humble, circumspect, and practical (all at the same time!). The practices at Pixar are so different from one sees at most companies (by a long shot). If there were ever to be A required book on innovation for senior leaders, this would be it. I have basically recommended it to every client I work with on innovation. Great stuff! -Gary P. Pisano, Harry E. Figgie Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School. ...

This article explores new avenues for academic research on the creative city. Creativity offers opportunities for urban development and the personal development of urban inhabitants, but its adoption in urban policy is frequently criticized for being welded to economic imperatives and a neoliberal agenda. Urban policymakers worldwide continue to adopt narrow conceptualizations of creativity while largely ignoring extensive academic criticism of the concept, suggesting that academic concerns with creativity in urban policy need to be reoriented more effectively. This article develops four key theoretical points on the creative city and creative urban policy. It argues that the focus of enquiry should shift towards a more in-depth understanding of how creativity is constructed, contested and performed in specific urban contexts, understanding the creative policy gap between policymakers and those engaged in all kinds of creative practice, and developing forms of artistic intervention to ...

The German novelist Thomas Mann (1875-1955) makes an interesting observation when he writes in his youthful novella Tonio Kröger: A property constituted, healthy, decent man never writes, acts, or composes.. Here, Mann states that artistic creativity belongs to an inherent sickliness of the creator.. While Mann would continuously revisit the theme of illness and its important role on creation throughout his career (e.g. The Magic Mountain), it is in his Faustian masterpiece Doctor Faustus where a decisive commentary on musical creativity is made. Here, a fictional composer Adrian Leverkuhn contracts syphilis through the devil, an act which results in the composers unleashing of unworldly creative powers.. If it is healthiness that you are after - well, with mind and art it has not got much to do, it even in a sort of way opposes them, prophesises a character in the book.. On the one hand, one can dismiss Manns preoccupation as a form of eccentric and degenerate fantasy. On the other hand, ...

For centuries, insanity and creativity have been linked in the popular imagination. In the modern era, biographical studies of accomplished artists, as well as psychological studies of both creative individuals and psychiatric patients, have documented a correlation of bipolar disorder with creativity. What accounts for this association? The U.C. Berkeley psychologist Sheri Johnson and a group of colleagues have looked at the psychological literature to understand what features of bipolar disord
Mind is humanitys highest developed instrument for seeking knowledge. It is the master tool that we use to comprehend the present, remember the past, and anticipate and plan for the future.

The mind is the unifying foundation on which humanitys entire social evolution is based. To understand this vital instrument better, the World Academy of Art & Science and World University Consortium have launched a ground-breaking project to explore Mind, Thinking and Creativity. A greater understanding of the nature of mind, its ways of knowing, the limits to thinking and rationality, minds untapped potential, the workings of creativity and genius are essential for addressing the challenges confronting humanity today.

If the heart of the program is empathy and emotional intelligence the muscle is exercising ones choice about how to respond to the behavior of others. Citing Viktor Frankls quote Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom Martin emphasizes that this power of the pause, can be learned. The pause between aggression and response can be developed and practiced so that the freedom to escape being targeted becomes automatic. Applied Improvisation offers a unique combination of structure - the rules of the game, the agreements that make a creative exercise interesting and challenging - and inventiveness through which new behaviors can be practiced. Improvisation is a group experience, the success of which turns on everyones awareness of and willingness to collaborate with others. This cultivates the creative confidence to think and behave in new ways when the pressure is on and the stakes ...
Perhaps the most common story thread I hear is: Improvisation changed (or saved) my life. It is the single most healing thing Ive done for myself. I have lost count of how many students have shared their healing story with me. Theyve tackled anxiety, depression, cancer, lack of self-confidence, loss of a loved one, loss of job, isolation, fear, anger, chemical dependency, divorce, creative blockages, loneliness, etc. And they credited their practice of improvisation as the healing agent.. There are tons of studies (some proven via old fashioned scientific method, others anecdotal) about the healing power of humor. I think most of us agree that humor is good for you. I could site all the findings, but by now most of us know them. Our bodies produce pain-killing hormones called endorphins in response to laughter; laughter strengthens immune function by the production of T-cells, interferon and immune proteins called globulins; and laughter reduces the stress hormone cortisol to bring us to a ...

Current liberal, mainstream Christian thought understands church to be not a collection of persons who have acquired special privileges, but rather a missionary enterprise: our primary purpose is to carry the message to those who still suffer, for example. But as a missionary, I will run into other churches, other religions, not merely old established ones, but new ones. If I have dualistic tendencies, I will be tempted to attribute these new religions to the forces of evil-as the early Church fathers did-but such a position cannot be maintained very long. These NRMs do work, they do their members much good, by ordinary standards; and much creativity has gone into establishing and maintaining these new religions. Now, Christians cannot attribute such goodness and creativity to the forces of evil: that would be Manichaeism, not Christianity. A strict monotheist must believe that all good things, all creativity, come from the one source of goodness, that is, the one God. Hence these other ...

There is a reason people continue to create art even when they discover that there is usually no money in it. The creative capacity that exists within human beings is essential to our existence. It is arguable that our creative abilities are even divine. It is widely believed that humans are a result of a divine beings creative process, which was instilled into us. Creative projects are more than just fun, they are a high-calling.. When it comes to creative projects in the visual arts spectrum, the therapeutic possibilities are endless. What we typically think of as art is an aesthetic arrangement of materials that impact the viewing audience by carrying meaning. Arriving at the destination of meaningful art is consistently a meaningful process. This meaningful process of journeying to fulfill an artistic vision is the part that is most important to people. The creative journey requires introspection, examination, integrity, self-awareness and connection to ones emotions. Going through this ...

I have 17 years of formal schooling under my belt but no class taught me more than The Creative Process my Senior year in college. Despite the fact that my profession is in business, this class taught me much more than any business class that claimed it would prepare me for the real world. Bullshit. I can learn that assets - liabilities = equities in a book. The purpose of this post isnt to hate on traditional schooling. Its to call out the teachers that think outside the box and what I learned from this brilliant professor. I hope it helps you to do something great today.. This professor had true wisdom. On the first day of class, he gave us a small sheet of paper with 11 topics principles on it. These principles are the basis of life. Follow these and youll be on a path to a fulfilled life.

People in customer service will have to learn to improvise. Be creative.

In fact the stimulus for writing this post came from reading the recipe.

A cook who puts those ingredients together, on order, to suit what the customer wants.. Creativity in ...

On a psychological level, shukra dhatu is related to the ability to sustain creativity. When the dhatu is healthy, there is a natural creative instinct and an ability to see the creative act through to completion. When the dhatu is deficient, there may still be a creative instinct, but the ability to follow it through to completion lessens. Thus, creative endeavors and completion of creative projects is a challenge. This is typical of vata psychology and becomes more of a challenge as vata becomes more and more vitiated. When the dhatu is in excess, it can actually block the creative instinct. However, any creativity that does arise is likely to be slowly and steadily manifested. This is the nature of kapha psychology and becomes greater as kapha becomes vitiated. In the person with a more pitta nature, the heat that enters the dhatu brings passion into their creative pursuits. When it is vitiated, pitta can burn out the creative instinct and the ability to follow through. ...

Matthew Quick is an Australian artist with a good sense of humour. His paintings depict some of the most famous sculptures from around the world, with the addition of little hints of modern life. As well as being funny to look at, the paintings definitely show some of the more absurd elements of life in this day and age and certainly provide a kind of social commentary (also helped by the amusing titles Quick gives to each painting). Our personal favourites are The Eternal Struggle depicting a classical male Greek sculpture at war with his vacuum cleaner, and The Emperors New Clothes, or better, Julius Caesar sporting a rather comical woolly hat. Enjoy a selection of Quicks work below.. ...
In order for a child being happy and develop well, the role that parents play is quite critical. They are the kidss first heroes and friends. Children learn the majority of their first lessons and concepts worldwide around them from their parents. This is why parents should view the methods to place their childrens creativity and mental abilities to positive use.

When I was accepted to Fiorello H. Laguardia High School of the Arts, I pictured the rest of my life as a creative, paint-spattered, canvas-covered, clay throwing fantasy. Three years later, the thought of creating art in this school makes me sigh and roll my eyes. Going to art school has changed my attitude on art from one of love and freedom to one of disdain and boredom.. My positive attitude on art used to make me feel unique and expressive, I was the artsy friend who got accepted to art school and was going to grow up to be the boldest illustrator or painter or whatever else my peers imagined me doing. Now, my negative attitude towards art is what makes me unique.. Almost everyone else in my school has resolved their disputes about how our bland, monotonous educational system is run. Theyre fine with it, fine with being drilled to make bland art every day of the week. They believe that its helpful. I used to believe the same. Freshman year I saw our classes and boring exercises as ...

Whats different about these companies that have grown from start-ups to a successful business is that they are lean learning machines. They have an intense bias to action and a high tolerance for risk, expressed through frequent experimentation and relentless product iteration. They hack together products and services, test them, and improve them, while their legacy competition edits project plans in PowerPoint. They are obsessed with company culture and top-tier talent, with an emphasis on employees that can imagine, build, and test their own ideas. They are hypersensitive to friction-in their daily operations and their user experiences. They are comfortable with the unknown; business models and customer value are revealed over time. And most importantly, they are driven by a purpose greater than just profit; each is explicit about how they intend to change the world in some small, or utterly massive, way.. Legacy businesses tend to focus on commercial outcomes: to be the number one player in ...

In schools and educational organizations, we can apply these lessons from Josh and Charlene as well. I had a phone conversation with Kevin Honeycutt last night, in which we discussed how often we see a mid-level administrator in a school (often an IT director or network manager) stifle and stop educational innovation involving Internet websites and social media. Addressing these issues is one goal of the Unmasking the Digital Truth wiki project. My thought on this is, if the leaders of the organization dont get it and support it (the proposed changes to organizational processes and culture catalyzed with social media) then the revolution is going to be stopped in its tracks. This happens quite often, I think, in our schools when it comes to web 2.0 technologies and creative, different ideas more generally.. We cannot and must not underestimate the importance of educational leadership, and our top level administrators both understanding and embracing an agenda for change in learning as it ...

Nicole. I appreciate your requesting a fathers point of view in raising up children---through the teens and beyond. I can tell you from my experience, that one size does not fit all---like BG and the gothardites would want you to think. I gave my kids (now grown up, some married), the one rule---I trust you until you prove me wrong. It is important to do fun (even crazy) things with them (traveling to places like Roswell, NM, Orlando FL, Gettysburg, PA).

The one thing that BG and the gothardites have done to royally mess themselves and others up is to take away the creative part of the child (e.g., art, drama, sports, Tae Kwon Do, reading materials,music, et al) that most gothardites would gasp at). Many gothardites have denied creativity in their children as they perceive a childs creativity as ungodly. (And IMHO I still think the ...
