Invitation for the tutorial Understanding and Evaluating Creativity

  at ACM Creativity & Cognition 2009


October 27, 2009, Berkeley Art Museum & UC Berkeley

T1. Understanding and Evaluating Creativity (full day)

  What do we mean when we speak of 'creativity'? How do we evaluate  
creativity in real life situations?

The tutorial will provide the participants with an understanding of  
creativity and how to approach its evaluation. It will introduce an  
approach to evaluating creativity from different viewpoints based on  
audience, artifact and creator capability. Participants will also be  
provided with tools for analyzing situations in which creative  
engagement may be taking place.

• Would you like to learn ways of demystifying the creative  
activities, and get an insight on nature of creativity?

• Would you like to go beyond familiar methods and learn about new  
approaches to evaluating creativity.

• Would you like to create more intriguing audience/user experiences  
and better understand their design processes

• Interested in understanding different ways audiences/ users may  
engage with interactive systems?

...then this tutorial is for you
