The outcome of which will encourage active, conscious creative thinking andapplication of creative processes (critical and conceptual) to arrive at solutions to challenges. The module will guide students to apply creativity to interpret, visualise and formulate theories and opinions as well as share and reflect observations. This module will provide opportunities to discuss similarities and differences amongst culture therefore forming a platform for students to develop key skills in social behaviour. Students will be equipped to recognise how creativity breeds in open, social environments and can inspire and influence cultures to cross-pollinate, share solutions and create legacy. Ultimately the module will empower students to be accountable for their identity and recognise the value of cross-cultural collaboration to reach creative solutions. All of which will equip students with transferable skills, perceptiveness, observation and decision making which can be applied to their academic journey with Regent’s University and professional career path moving forward.3.
