Course description

This course is all about creativity and innovation skills. Creativity helps us think about and see things in new and different ways. Being creative can lead to innovations that make our work and daily lives better. In this course, we’ll explore how and why being creative can help us. We’ll also learn about ways to improve our creativity and innovation skills and deal with creativity blockers when we feel stuck.

The Creativity and Innovation course is part of the UP Skills for Work program which helps you build skills for learning, work, and life.
