How do schools foster the kinds of creative processes and skills that young people will need for the 21st century?\r\nIn this course we examine some of the ways in which creativity, learning and innovation have been conceptualized and studied in different research traditions. There is a particular focus on sociocultural perspectives that study creativity as something that is developed through human practices and activities in dialogue with historically-developed tools, genres, and conventions. During the course, perspectives on what characterizes innovation and creative processes in various practices will be discussed and presented, for example:\r\nHow may creative processes be supported in multi-professional group work?\r\nHow is new knowledge developed and used in creative processes within design and product development?\r\nWhat are the conditions for developing creativity in informal and formal learning contexts?\r\nThese topics will be explored based on research and case studies of creative processes in different kinds of activities. The studies are anchored in a practical-theoretical understanding of human activity and development, emphasizing the reciprocal relationship between people, cultural and material artefacts, and social norms and practices. The course is for students interested in understanding how creativity develops under different conditions, and who want to develop skills in planning and designing for creative processes in different contexts.\r\nThe course is aimed at students who are interested in understanding relations between creativity, learning and innovation, and who wish to develop skills in facilitating these processes in different contexts."],"desc":"What characterizes creative processes, actions, and products?
