A Crash Course on Creativity on #Venture-Lab

Join me in #Stanford's free online class on A Crash Course on Creativity on #Venture-Lab. http://venture-lab.org/creativity


The Course
This crash course is designed to explore several factors that stimulate and inhibit creativity in individuals, teams, and organizations. In each session we will focus on a different variable related to creativity, such as framing problems, challenging assumptions, and creative teams.
The course is highly experiential, requiring each student to participate actively, taking on weekly projects. Each Wednesday a new challenge will be presented, and the results are due the following Tuesday. Some of the challenges will be completed individually, and some will be done in teams. There will be a two-week project toward the end of the course that will allow you to use all the tools you have learned.
To foster collaboration and learning between the students, we will craft teams for each assignment. Each project will be done with a different team, so students get a chance to work with a wide variety of participants. All submissions will be viewed and evaluated by the course participants. There will also be a course Twitter feed and Facebook page, and several scheduled Google Hangouts that will enable active discussions on specific topics.

    Currently it appears like Wordpress is the best
    blogging platform available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

  2. A single online course typically takes just eight weeks to complete.
    This is because these courses often provide the foundation needed to
    take an associate's degree in medical assisting. In addition to online
    study, students are able to acquire practical experience through clinical
    training, provided by local associated medical centers.
