How to Be Creative in Textile Art Book Excerpt:

It’s a question asked by many budding textile artists: how can I be more creative? You’ve got a few ideas and know some techniques, but you’re not sure how to get started or make your work hang together. This book shows you how. It explains the creative process from the very beginning: where to find inspiration and how to harness those ideas; how to gather source material; how to pull together what you have. The authors then take you on a journey to develop a design. Learn how to put elements together to make a cohesive whole and develop a theme, learning established design rules along the way. Part Three, Moving into Stitch, gives you a range of techniques and easy experiments with which to turn your design into stitched-textile work. From choosing what fabrics to use, to layering, creating texture and adding embellishment, it covers the key techniques to try. This is a terrific book for those starting out in textiles who really do want to be as creative as they can possibly be.

Unsafe Thinking How to be Creative and Bold When You Need It Most Book Excerpt:

_____________ ‘An array of fresh insights on creativity, motivation and staying in “flow” Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and To Sell Is Human _____________ In Unsafe Thinking, creativity guru Jonah Sachs demonstrates that the most remarkable and trailblazing individuals – from the Google programmer who disobeyed his managers in order to revolutionise the world’s email systems, to the mayor who employed mime artists to transform his city's traffic problem – are those who dramatically reject the lure of what they know. He draws on cutting-edge psychology and neuroscience to uncover the specific mental habits that account for the success of those who break the mould. And he reveals how, by embracing a handful of simple brain-hacks and cognitive tools, we can all harness the power of the unsafe thinkers. By revealing the secrets of those who reject our society’s outmoded approach to work, Unsafe Thinking promises to unleash the hidden power of creativity in all of us. _____________ ‘An enchanting book about how to question the conventional, challenge the status quo, and unlock the creative solutions right under your nose.’ Adam Grant, author of Originals ‘Fascinating . . . Sachs has practical tools for success.’ Forbes ‘A must-read for anyone facing a changing world.’ Jonah Berger, author of Contagious

Creative Confidence How To Unleash Your Confidence Be Super Innovative Design Your Life In 30 Days Book Excerpt:

Creative confidence sounds like some type of a fancy term for something but in reality, it is a reference to the level of confidence that a person has when it comes to their own creativity. For example, if you have a lot of confidence when it comes to your creative abilities, then you have a lot of creative confidence. On the other hand, if you are someone that believes that you have no artistic ability, no musical ability and no ability to think outside the box, then your creative confidence is probably very low. Just as you would do with virtually anything else, the level of creative confidence that you have in your abilities is directly tied to your ability to achieve the things that you want to achieve. Most of the time, you are able to do exactly what you think you can do. Therefore, if you believe that you can do anything when it comes to being creative, then you probably can. By the same token, if you believe that you have virtually no creative ability, you will probably experience a perceived lack of creativity because you are beating yourself before you even make an attempt at doing something creative. This often leads to a self-fulfilling prophecy. To reiterate that point, if you believe you can do something, you can likely do it. If you believe that you cannot do something, you will probably quit before you ever find success.

How to Have Creative Ideas Book Excerpt:

Everybody wants to be creative. Creativity makes life more fun, more interesting and more full of achievement, but too many people believe that creativity is something you are born with and cannot be learned. In How to Have Creative Ideas Edward de Bono - the leading authority on creative thinking - outlines 62 different games and exercises, built around random words chosen from a list, to help encourage creativity and lateral thinking. For example, if the task were to provide an idea for a new restaurant and the random word chosen was 'cloak', ideas generated might be: a highwayman theme; a Venetian theme with gondolas; masked waiters and waitresses. Or, if asked to make a connection between the two random words 'desk' and 'shorts', readers may come up with: both are functional; desks have 'knee holes' and shorts expose the knees; traditionally they were both male-associated items. All the exercises are simple, practical and fun, and can be done by anyone.

How to Manage Creative People and Foster Creativity within an Organization Book Excerpt:

Experimenting and prototyping new products and services requires creativity. Organizations must then acquire creative people. Psychologists have attributed the personality traits of conscientiousness and openness to creativity. Observed characteristics of Individuals who are high in the conscientiousness trait include the following: goal oriented, ambitious, careful, observant of people around them, organized, empathetic, and non-impulsive. Observed characteristics of Individuals who are high in openness include the following: adventurous, imaginative, artistic, and curious. How do organizations find creative people? Better yet, how do organizations formally organize and manage creative people? Do organizations prefer to integrate these type of people into broader departments, or does it make sense to have an explicit prototype and experimentation department? Should creative people be tasked to a team or work individually. If they are tasked to a team, how large should the team be? Do larger teams lead to more innovation and faster production of new products and services, or do large teams hinder the potential progress that a fewer participants could achieve? What, if any, routinization methods can be employed to increase the efficiency or quantity of prototype production? What training techniques can be employed to participants within the organizations to help them become more creative?

Contemporary Perspectives on Research in Creativity in Early Childhood Education Book Excerpt:

Recently, a new understanding of creative thought and creative performance has surfaced. It has also attracted the attention of early childhood professional organizations and researchers. Professional organizations have included it in their publications and conferences. While current creativity researchers have initiated a far more sophisticated understanding of young children’s creative thinking, ways to assess creativity, strategies to promote creativity, and research methodologies. The purpose of this volume is to present a wide range of different theories and areas in the study of creativity to help researchers and theorists work toward the development of different perspectives on creativity with young children. It focuses on critical analyses and reviews of the literature on topics related to creativity research, development, theories, and practices. It will serve as a reference for early childhood education researchers, scholars, academics, general educators, teacher educators, teachers, graduate students, and scientists to stimulate further “dialogue” on ways to enhance creativity. The chapters are of high quality and provide scholarly analyses of research studies that capture the full range of approaches to the study of creativity --- behavioral, clinical, cognitive, cross-cultural, developmental, educational, genetic, organizational, psychoanalytic, psychometric, and social. Interdisciplinary research is also included, as is research within specific domains such as art and science, as well as on critical issues (e.g., aesthetics, genius, imagery, imagination, insight, intuition, metaphor, play, problem finding and solving). Thus, it offers critical analyses on reviews of research in a form that are useful to early childhood researchers, scholars, educators, and graduate students. It also places the current research in its historical context. The volume is also of interest to the general readers who are interested in the young children’s creativity. The chapters are authored by established scholars in the field of young children’s creativity.

On this already strong foundation, case studies and bibliographies are updated, and several helpful pedagogical elements are added.

The Principles That Facilitate Successful and Timely Degree Completion Book Excerpt:

Scholarly evidence indicates that almost fifty percent of people who commence higher education delay completing their studies, and other dropouts. Most governments have introduced a policy that requires students to complete their studies within a limited time, especially the research students (master's and doctoral degree students). The implementation of the policy has also caused tension in higher education students' learning and supervision. Academics have debated and written about the problem widely, and it is no longer a discreet encounter for higher education stakeholders. Despite the scholarly effort of disclosing the challenges' depth, no literature has adequately supported students to implement the policy effectively and successfully. This book attempts to fill the gap by guiding higher education students on observing ten major principles for timely and successful completion. If students perceive, learn, and practice the guidance in this book, they will attain their degree anywhere (in a physical setting, online, home, and abroad) worldwide. The principles might be useful in the orientation programs for first-year students in universities and colleges. First, students ought to comprehend factors that might contribute to the delay completion and dropout. Second, they must analyze and communicate their needs and requirements from the beginning of their enrolment while re-examining their association, networking, self-management, and self-leadership. The book also reminds higher education students to build healthy habits to support developing cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains and remain active and creative. Four categories of students' personalities are discussed to urge students to evaluate who they are and whether they are problem solvers, informers, implementers, or workforce to society. The understanding can support them chose the projects that align with what they are to society. Self-awareness and leadership may make the learning task more manageable, enjoyable, and meaningful, and filling the knowledge gap can be realized timely.
