This course reflects increasing number of unconventional and non-routine tasks and problems which require new solutions not known in advance. Topics of the course are linked to general steps of problem solving and focused on phase of generation, assesment and selection of solution. As a overlap the course enables better work in choosen field of interest as well as easier way to new proffesion and higher flexibility of graduates.
will get overview about creativity importance;
will try out methods supporting new solutions finding and continueus work with this solutions;
will master selected methods of work with multiple variants.
List of main topics

restriction as creativity supporting factor
me and creativity, personality inventory
inborn creativity support and development
Methods to generate new solutions

Bude doplněno vyučujícím po zahájení kurzu,
Interactive form with model situations and reflection
The main point of lessons are model situations, their reflection and feedback. Frontal teaching and theory parts are limited to necessary minimum as introduction in actual topic, giving general context etc. In particular topics we suppose training form, ie. repeated excercises focused on particular skills; in other topics trying out at least.
active participation (homework fulfilment etc.)
seminar work – case interpretation, semester reflection
model situation handling
getting enough point from other students (continuous work assessment)
