Dr. Cyndi Burnett is an Assistant Professor at the International Center for Studies in Creativity at Buffalo State. She implements the Center’s efforts to “ignite creativity around the world,” and her work includes projects such as: developing online 3D creativity labs, connecting communities of creative thinkers via social media, writing books on incorporating creativity into a classroom setting, and designing a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Everyday Creativity.
Prior to becoming an academic, Dr. Burnett was a professional actress. Having performed in many stage productions, she realized that she had developed a passionate interest in the underlying processes involved in creation. This realization led to her studying creativity at the ICSC and ultimately gaining her EdD in Curriculum, Teaching and Learning from the University of Toronto.
