IACT Academics

Applied Creativity for Transformation

The IACT curriculum introduces students to the creative competencies that today’s job market demands — critical perspective, complex problem solving and collaboration with others — while applying those same skills to the students’ diverse disciplines of study. Through the introduction of creative theory, critical perspective and innovative immersions within collaborative problem-solving, the students' perceptions of what is and what can be in their field of study and the world they live in will broaden in creative, critical and innovative ways.


IACT Learning Outcomes:

CRITICAL PERSPECTIVE

Through the introduction of applied creative theory including transdisciplinary education examples and humanity-centered design exercises, students' ideas of what is and what can be in their field of study and the world they live in will broaden in imaginative, critical and innovative ways.

CREATIVE CONFIDENCE

When one’s disciplines of study fuses with growing critical perspective, students develop the applied creative acumen to see the broad and diverse set of solutions in front of them and make leaps, trust their intuition, and challenge solutions regardless of the failure/success binary.

INNOVATIVE APPLICATION

The fearless practice of seeing the world in complex ways and experimenting with improbable materials in seeking imaginative, unexpected and innovative solutions for multiple professional outcomes.
