creative thinking in research

Overview

This course explores the art of creative thinking as a way to enhance research and its multi/interdisciplinary potential.  The focus is on using poetry and art as a way to enhance multidisciplinary.  This workshops also provides creative strategies to reduce stress and enhance wellbeing.   At the end of every workshop there will be a pop-up exhibition.  In April 2019 I ran this workshop for academic staff and research support staff at Swansea University.  The feedback was very positive and here is the video of the end-of-workshop pop-up exhibition:
