19-308 HUMOR AND CREATIVITY: SMILE YOUR WAY TO INNOVATIVE THINKING (REPEAT)
Marv Goldberg, Wednesday 7 - 9 pm
Sonoran Room: October 23
This presentation reviews a wide body of research that points to the value of humor in enhancing creative efforts both individually and in group situations. A major distinction in this research is the type of humor that is most effective in the short term vs. the longer term—for example, a brief issue with “writer’s block” versus the difficulties in dealing with a complex ongoing problem. Insights gained from comedians, advertisers, improvisational actors and social psychologists are reviewed.
This is a free class, but participants must pre-register online before attending.
