Are you working in Education?

If so, you may be interested in UCLan’s MA Creative Thinking distance learning course.

As educators, our ability to foster creative thinking in others is crucial. Our students will belong to a world where technological transformation will likely influence today’s conventions beyond recognition.  We cannot predict this world, yet, the “ability” to think creatively will surely be a major asset. Whether we teach, train or coach, how to nurture creative thinking is a tacit, if not explicit aspiration for the education we offer.
