Creative Problem Solving MOOC

While teaching at University of Minnesota, I was co-instructor for the first round of the Massive Open Online Course: Creative Problem Solving hosted on Coursera. This was a seven-week free class teaching creativity with a global community of students. In addition to teaching and creating lecture videos, I created a visual identity used within videos, lecture materials and social media. The series of assignments were entitled "Do Something Different" designed for getting students to generate ways to implement creativity into their daily lives and explore new solutions to problems within universal themes. Some quick student samples from the MOOC can be found on the CPS Instagram page.
