Creativity and Innovation: Coming to a University Near You

Learning to Think Outside the Box: Creativity Becomes an Academic Discipline”  These efforts are happening all over nation.  Even at BYU there are some very promising efforts already taking place such as at the Ballard Center for Social and Entrepreneurship, the Laycock Center for Creative Collaboration, the Rollins Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology (I’m an acting associate director there), in the School of Education (with efforts by Rick West, Peter Rich and others), the School of Technology (e.g., Innovation Bootcamp and History of Creativity 201 and 202, all classes that I’ve taught), the cross-disciplinary Crocker Innovation Fellows program, the Digital Humanities program and the Humanities Center, and the IMPACT program (Interdisciplinary Mentoring Program in Analysis, Computation, and Theory) led by Jeff Humphreys and others, as well as many other individual and group efforts to enhance the teaching and learning of creativity, innovation, and design at BYU.  This is a thrilling time to be alive, to see these important efforts gain STEAM.
