The purpose of the Role Model Consultation Assignment is for students to gain a deeper understanding of the practice of creative individuals with a view towards applying these insights to improve creative practice. Students will capture insights, learnings, and reflections in a short 4-5 page (1000 word minimum), paper, 12 point font, APA format; complete with a separate coverpage that includes a word count. Students will also include a separate bibliography with at least 2 academic sources (that are cited in body of the paper). To complete this assignment, students will arrange a 15-25 minute consultation session with a role model of their choosing. Students should structure the questions for their consultation around key points of interest (as defined by the student; aka. What do you want to learn from this person in terms of creative/innovative performance in the 21st Century? What key skills might you develop/focus upon?). While I don’t wish to tell you what to ask, here are some prompts you may choose to focus their consultative discussions on the following:
What, if anything, does the role model do in their practice to prepare for/entice creative insight?
What practices or techniques does the role model believe are important for creativity and creative performance?
What dispositions, aptitudes, or mindsets does the role model believe are important for creativity and creative performance?
What trends does the role model feel are shaping their field/ the future of their field?
What advice does the role model have for you in terms of improving your own creative performance and preparing for the future?
How does these insights align with/support/ or compare with the literature we’ve covered to date on creativity and creative performance?
