  • Who’s game for joining me in a MOOC on Creativity, Innovation, and Change? I like to think of myself as being a creative person, and am always on the lookout for new ideas and techniques.  I like the outline of this Penn State course, which starts on the 14th of July and it occurred to me that it would be even greater if it were packed with liberty-loving individuals so I’m sharing details of it here. If you do decide to join, please PM me and we can compare notes as we go along. Here’s what they say about this 6 week course: Creativity, Innovation, and Change In 2013, over 130,000 people from more than 190 countries came together in this MOOC to explore creativity, innovation, and change. What did we DO? We discovered creative uniqueness through Creative Diversity. We used Intelligent Fast Failure to build innovative skills. And we applied CENTER principles to drive personal change. That was CIC 1.0, and it was a BLAST! Now we’re back – and even better than before – with some new faces and fresh ideas to help you develop your creative potential, so you can enhance and transform your business, your community, and your personal life. This is CIC 2.0 … and we’re ready to ROCK! Here’s the link to the Full Course Details on Coursera. Did I mention that there’s no cost?
