The title of this course is “Creativity”, through which UMx aims to invite learners explore their own ideas through a series of of short video lectures, combined with exercise questions, online and offline communication and interactive learning.

As traditional industries continue to decline, knowledge- and skill-based professions are gradually being taken up by artificial intelligence and robots. Experts predict that this trend will only intensify. Fostering creativity, innovation, practical ability, critical thinking, leadership and teamwork is a crucial task. “Creativity” combines content with technologies and instill modes of creative thinking through mini-lectures before prompting learners to have hands-on experience.

Instructors of this MOOC are Prof. Katrine Wong (FAH), Prof. Michael LI (FED) and Prof. Davood Gozli (FSS); they areliterature scholar, theatre arts specialists and psychologist who will guide learners through a challenging yet fun learning journey. This course promises to nurture creativity and help learners see and hear differently. UMx “Creativity” is about transforming the ordinary into extraordinary.

Interested learners, regardless of your age, background and prior knowledge on creativity can go to [here] for registration. This fun-filled, comprehensive course is completely free of charge.
