Creativity & Cognition 2007 Tutorial

Posted in CCS-blog, CCS-announcements on February 20th, 2007

A proposal for a one day tutorial called ‘Understanding and Evaluating Creativity’ to be given at Creativity & Cognition 2007 was successful. Linda Candy and Zafer Bilda are joint presenters.

The aim of the tutorial is to provide the participants with an understanding of the significance of creativity for interaction design and to give guidance about the design and evaluation of systems with respect to their role in creativity support. Participants will also be provided with tools for analyzing and evaluating situations in which creative engagement and interaction may be taking place.

OBJECTIVES ARE:
• Provide up to date knowledge about creativity from research and practice
• Provide an understanding of the significance of creativity for interaction design
• Provide guidance for the design and evaluation of creativity support tools
• Provide an overview of methods, tools and techniques for observing creative activities
• Describe a video based methodology for demystifying creative processes
• Engage participants in exercises for studying and analyzing creativity and creativity support
