Description

This class was created to serve as the LSA core course for the Entrepreneurship minor and considers creativity as a construct as well as a process within the larger concept of entrepreneurship while grounding course content in a semester-long group project. We will consider the elements of creative thinking, personal characteristics related to creativity, and team dynamics/leadership skills needed to participate in and lead creative groups. Some questions we will consider include: Is creative thinking somehow different from “normal” thinking? What sort of characteristics foster creativity for individuals and groups? What is the relation between idea generation and collaborative teamwork? How do entrepreneurs in business, social goods, and technology development and employ vital skills in persuasion, cooperation, communication as they bring ideas to life in the form of enterprises? This course will explore all these questions in order to ground students in both the theory and practice of creativity as it takes shape in entrepreneurial endeavors.

Course Requirements:

The course will utilize two weekly one hour lectures and a one-hour discussion section on Fridays (either 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. or 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.). Discussion section attendance is highly weighted because that is the primary group meeting time for the project. Graded assessments will include 2-3 short reaction papers, attendance in the discussion section, completion of online quizzes prior to each lecture, and periodic submissions of work-product related to the semester-long creative group project. There are no required books or coursepacks for this course, all readings will be provided as PDFs. TOP HAT will be used in the lecture for feedback and assessment, and lecture attendance and responses will count towards participation grade.

Intended Audience:

The ideal student for this class is a sophomore or junior pursuing the Entrepreneurship minor, or with a strong interest in creativity as applied to entrepreneurial work and team skills. Having a creative or entrepreneurial idea IS NOT REQUIRED, but students will be required to form groups and come up with an idea.

Class Format:

Two 1-hour lectures and one 1-hour discussion section weekly.
