Getting out my ‘Creativity, Innovation and Change’ eCrayons (B822)

Let’s say I’m going to blog this one by the day; not at all hard to do.

I am an habitual diary-writer with a 37 year track record. Can I, however, make this more of a tool and less of a toy, this is after all a module from the Business School and according to discussions (in the ‘Open University Business & Law School’) ‘transformative’ (alumni rave about it) i.e. more reflection and less indulgent ‘stream of consciousness’ monologue spoken through my QWERTY fingertips?

I stumbled into the module pages as an alert on my Student Home pages indicated that a message had been posted.

It looked ominously playful with each sentence a different Rainbow red, orange, purple or blue.

That’s a first!

The Course Chair likes his e-crayon set.

(He did kindly resist using multiple fonts, though, research has shown that making something physically difficult to read improves retention of the information expressed because the mind has to work at extracting meaning).

To course notes

I ALWAYS make the a space of my own by cutting out and posting elsewhere the bits that matter to me: here is how my six months will be spent; two months each of:

  1. an introduction to the module concepts that focuses on the individual level of creativity, cognition, style and development.
  2. team-based and individual approaches to creative problem management.
  3. ways of developing organisational innovation and climate.

A box of resources, books and maybe a DVD awaits me at home (I away from home during the week) Let the FUN commence!

  1. I know this if off topic but I¡¯m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I¡¯m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I¡¯m not very internet smart so I¡¯m not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
