Order Description
Assessment Details;
The purpose of this group learning task is for students to become familiar with an Applied Creativity & Innovation
model, develop skills in applying Deliberate Creative Thinking techniques to a real life problem, and have the
opportunity to observe and analyse different creative processes.
Students will work in groups of four or five. Each group is to identify a situation, challenge, or opportunity they can
collectively focus on. This may be one in one of own organisations or a general area of opportunity in the broeder
community, that could benefit from the application of Deliberate Creative Thinking processes. Each group will set
their focus statement for this project, and over the semester work on this selected project, working through the
different stages of the Applied Creativity & Innovation model outlined in this course and applying a variety of
Deliberate Creative Thinking techniques.
TEAM PRESENTATION (20%) AND WRITTEN REPORT (20%)
The group’s work will be evaluated on a 20 minute oral presentation and submission of their supporting team
project report. Students are encouraged to use creative processes in this presentation and to make the session an
enjoyable and enlightening learning activity for all the class members. Presentations are expected to be
professionally delivered and accompanied by appropriate graphical material (PowerPoint slides, overheads, video
clips, whiteboard demonstrations, hand-outs)
The presentation should:
(1) Describe the starting challenge in the chosen situation of your group, identify the methods used to better
establish and define this problem and show the results of the application of these methods
(2) Outline the methods of idea finding that have been applied to your identified problem and show the results of
the application of these methods
(3) Outline the methods used for evaluating the ideas that were generated from the foregoing methods/processes
and show the results of the application of these methods
(4) Not only describe the outcomes of the activities undertaken at each stage of the problem solving process but
also reflect on the strengths and limitations of the various methods / techniques that you have used in your
efforts to enhance creative problem solving.
As well as undertaking a presentation groups will provide the lecturer with a written report of 2000-2500 words
detailing the project. Include copies of supporting documentation that show the group’s work and application of
creative techniques (e.g. Mind Maps, ideation notes, photos, visual representations, and a copy of any PowerPoint
