Creativity & Innovation has a variety of resources for faculty who want to create new, or amplify existing, components of their courses centered around Creativity & Innovation’s core programmatic themes: Creativity & Creative Problem-Solving, Resilience, Mindfulness, Changemaking (bringing ideas into action). Creativity & Innovation staff are available to assist faculty to develop or modify activities, and to facilitate activities within classes as requested.
This section contains examples of creativity and creative problem-solving modules that can be adapted for classes, selected case studies of CC classes, and a bibliography of relevant books and articles.

“Working with Innovation at CC allows me to cross disciplinary boundaries in a way that feels more honest for me in my pedagogical practice. The support from Innovation for my collaboration with Janani Balasubramanian allowed us to work with a cohort of students and model an iterative generative process that was not restricted to either art or science, but truly co-creating in both spaces.”– Natalie Gosnell
