Our two key aims are:
- To inspire and support staff and students in those subject areas which require students to understand and display “creativity”
- To inspire and support staff and students to be more creative in their approaches to teaching and learning, across all disciplines and subject areas.
In order to fulfil these, InQbate will include within its remit utilising technology more effectively in the creative process, whether in the creative arts, design or every-day activities. Currently technology is most effective as a partner only when our ideas are already formed. Creative processes typically begin with less developed material and fuzzy notions of structure. The CETL in Creativity will enable the further application of technology to creative problem-solving tasks.
Two Creativity Zones enable groups of individuals to come together, within a technology-rich environment, in order to communicate, share ideas and generate designs.
