Creativity Innovation And Design
View the video for EGR 392: Creativity, Innovation and Design, taught by Derek Lidow. Open to all undergraduates across all departments, this course focuses on fostering creativity and encourages different ways of thinking about real-world problems. The classroom was redesigned specifically for Lidow’s class and has the capability to be reconfigured at any moment during class to encourage a flow of new ideas. In a final culminating design project, students’ newly cultivated creativity was put to the test in a project that asked them to work in small groups to design products or services that would mitigate high-risk drinking on Princeton’s campus. Their solutions ranged from a new cup design that accurately shows how much it contains to new online education programs. Taught for the first time in Spring 2014, the course was offered again in Spring 2015.
