In the Spring 2015 semester, Dr. Cyndi Burnett ran a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Everyday Creativity with her colleague and fellow creativity researcher Dr. John Cabra.
The six-week MOOC covered four practical, research-based components of creativity:
- the creative process – ways to generate breakthrough ideas,
- the creative person – how to make the most of individual particular skills and talents,
- the creative environment – the physical and psychological factors that enhance creativity, and
- the creative product – implementing ideas.
Ignite Your Everyday Creativity reached over 43,000 participants in its very first iteration. The course is now on-demand, where it will reach thousands more! For more information on the MOOC, please click here.
