Module content and teaching

Principal aims

Each week will be split between a subject-specialist led session and an hour in which the students and module leader will work with the week's set stimulus to develop student ideas. This latter part will embody an interdisciplinary emphasis and use IATL's Open-Space Learning alongside reflection and discussion.

Principal learning outcomes

Bring you to a theoretical understanding of imagination, imaginative thinking, and creativity, as well as their processes and applications. Engage you on an interdisciplinary level. Enable you to reflect upon and articulate your creative practices. Have you reflect on how imagination might help you become a more effective learner and producer of knowledge as well as aid you beyond university studies. Explore the relationship between “imagination”, “rational thinking”, and “knowledge”. Give you the chance to apply what you learn in a practical way.

Timetabled teaching activities

The module will consist of nine two hour sessions, for up to twenty students, from across the University's departments.
