(Sarasota, Florida – March 9, 2019) – Legos are serious stuff for Csaba Osvath. In his session, Creativity and Design Thinking Through Lego Serious Play, USF doctoral candidate Osvath will provide participants with a hands-on experience in exploring how Legos can be used for teaching creativity, acquiring skills for creative problem-solving, and developing a design-thinking mindset.
Creative leaders come from around Florida and beyond to both learn and share personal and professional creativity development. Like Csaba Osvath, they will bring a diverse and eclectic set of tools to spark the imagination and ignite the creativity of attendees – and each other.
“This year’s theme ‘Navigating Now and Beyond’ speaks to the importance of creativity as a catalyst for professional success and personal satisfaction,” said conference founder and creative leader, Dr. Kitty Heusner. “Creativity is recognized as the top skill to navigate an increasingly complex world and to move forward into a future orchestrated by artificial intelligence.”
