This module gives students an opportunity to develop a critical awareness of current theories concerning the origins and role of creativity in the economy and society, and various approaches to the management of creativity at the levels of the individual, small teams, organisations and in public policy. The course is not particularly designed to improve the creativity of students (although it may have that effect). It is designed help students to understand and manage creativity (including their own). Its aims are: to introduce students to a broad range of debates, perspectives and practical issues within the social sciences concerning the nature of creativity; to provide students with an integrated framework for the analysis of creativity and creativity management; to enable students to reflect on the process of managing creative practices (including their own) and to situate creativity within its wider global, economic, social and political contexts.
