Creativity Week Keynote Event: Keith Sawyer: Zig Zag: The Surprising Path to Greater Creativity
Hofstra Cultural Center presents Zig Zag: The Surprising Path to Greater Creativity by Keith Sawyer. Keith Sawyer, Morgan Distinguished Professor in Educational Innovations at UNC’s School of Education, speaks about his book Zig Zag, a science-backed method to maximize creative potential in any sphere of life. With the prevalence of computer technology and outsourcing, new jobs and fulfilling lives will rely heavily on creativity and innovation. Sawyer draws from his expansive research of the creative journey, exceptional creators, creative abilities, and world-changing innovations to create an accessible eight-step program to increase anyone’s creative potential. Sawyer reveals the surprising secrets of highly creative people (such as learning to ask better questions when faced with a problem), demonstrates how to come up with better ideas, and explains how to carry those ideas to fruition most effectively.
