"Enticing Practical Creativity"

Dr. Kazem Kazerounian, Dean of the School of Engineering

Creativity is a complex mental and social process leading to the generation of new ideas or concepts, or new relationships between existing ideas or concepts. Creativity itself has been rightly recognized as a key to economic growth and social transformation, and is one of the main ingredients in achieving successful ventures that, in turn, drive the global economy. This talk, led by Dean Kazem Kazerounian of the School of Engineering, will entail an overview of creative and effective critical thinking, as well practical techniques and strategies to encourage creativity.

Attending this event counts toward Sophomore Honors.
