THINKING AND CREATIVITY ACROSS THE CURRICULUM

N. Hughson

University of Advancing Technology (UNITED STATES)
Modern education is dealing with the explosion of information. It means that today’s knowledge will quickly become outdated. As a result, the goals for education shifted from memorization and imitation to creative thinking skills and inventiveness development. In this presentation, 21 modes of thinking and their cross-disciplinary application are examined. The paper (1) challenges the current notion that creativity cannot be taught; (2) affirms and promotes awareness of thinking process and it’s role in the invention or generation of new ideas in a given discipline; (3) supports the idea that the understanding, insights, and methodologies of several disciplines may enhance one another, thus enabling people to completely and effectively use their thinking capacity; and (4) offers general proposals for a new kind of program for stimulating and developing thinking and creativity skills across the curriculum.
