The purpose of this project is to introduce and integrate creativity and creative problem solving concepts and methods that are supported by the application of technology and digital media into the professional learning and career development process. The current training framework consisting primarily of instructor-led lectures supported by PowerPoint presentations is not sufficient to provide students with depth and breadth of information needed to achieve competence. Creativity and innovation are critical skills needed to succeed in a globally competitive and changing marketplace and are now required competencies that need to be demonstrated. Interweaving creativity skills training and facilitation with other content is an opportunity to teach creativity within the specified domain’s prescribed framework.
