Workshop on: Creativity and Cognition in Engineering Design

At  the conference on  Creativity and Cognition 2009:
October 27, 2009,
Berkeley, CA.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in engineering
education, engineering design, design of interactive technologies, and learning
sciences who study theoretical and pedagogical issues at the juncture of
creativity and cognition within the disciplinary context of engineering. The
need to produce a creative engineering workforce for the 21st century is well
recognized and this workshop aims to contribute to this dialogue by exploring
what is creativity in engineering and how do engineering students develop the
knowledge and skills of acting creatively.

Some topics of interest include:
-Constraints and Creativity in Engineering Design
-Prior Knowledge and Framing Theories
-Technology and Creativity in Engineering Design
-Acting Creatively while Designing
-Assessing Creativity

We are open to a broad range of submissions. To participate please submit a 2-4
page position paper outlining your interests and current work to the workshop
organizers (listed below) by August 31, 2009. Decisions will be made by
September 07, 2009.  Please send submissions to: [log in to unmask]
