Creativity in Research : Cultivate Clarity, Be Innovative, and Make Progress in your Research Journey, Hardback Book


Creativity is at the heart of successful research, yet researchers are rarely taught how to manage their creative process, and modern academic life is not structured to optimize creativity.

Creativity in Research provides concrete guidance on developing creativity for anyone doing or mentoring research.

Based on a curriculum developed at Stanford University's Hasso Plattner Institute of Design, this book presents key abilities that underlie creative research practice through a combination of scientific literature on creative confidence, experiential exercises, and guided reflection.

By focusing attention on how research happens as well as its outputs, researchers increase their ability to address research challenges and produce the outputs they care about.

Simultaneously, they may also transform their emotional relationship with their work, replacing stress and a harsh inner critic with a more open and emotionally empowered attitude.
