Free online course given by the brilliant Tina Seeling, Executive Director of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program and author of the wonderfully creative 2009 book "What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20: A Crash Course on Making Your Place in the World" and the recently published "inGenius: A Crash Course on Creativity".
Course is to start in Fall 2012 (nothing more specific given...I signed up today and it hasn't started yet).
Information from the website:
"This crash course is designed to explore several factors that stimulate and inhibit creativity in individuals, teams, and organizations. In each session we will focus on a different variable related to creativity, such as framing problems, challenging assumptions, and creative teams.
"The course is highly experiential, requiring each student to participate actively, taking on weekly projects. Each Monday a new challenge will be presented, and the results are due the following Friday. Some of the challenges will be completed individually, and some will be done in teams. There will be a two-week project toward the end of the course that will allow you to use all the tools you have learned.
"To foster collaboration and learning between the students, we will craft teams for each assignment. Each project will be done with a different team, so students get a chance to work with a wide variety of participants. All submissions will be viewed and evaluated by the course participants. There will also be a course Twitter feed and Facebook page, and several scheduled Google Hangouts that will enable active discussions on specific topics."
