I teach project management to college students and they have a six week assignment of designing and pitching an original theme park. They are responsible for acquiring land, developing conceptual designs, drafting budgets, creating rides and entertainment, marketing merchandise, and so forth. For one class, they are developing a virtual reality + augmented reality themed park, but incorporating natural, real-life landscapes. My second class is doing a park based on the escape room concept, but expanding it into open spaces.
As they initiate the work ahead, I've been stuck on how to teach creativity & innovation. I can lecture about budgets, time management, marketing, business plans, business leadership, networking, etc. with ease. But creativity? And innovation? Oh boy.
So I made a quick guide for all those who need support. Enjoy!
