Creativity through Communication?
This Event is organized by the Department of Foreign Language Business Communication
Creativity is highly valued not only in the arts but also in business and other domains of professional practice, and not only individuals but also groups can activate their creative potential. But how does group creativity come about and how can it be encouraged? What kind of communication leads to creative outcomes, and can we identify moments of creativity in interactions and in the language used? We will discuss how creativity is relevant for practice in a variety of domains and consider the role played by communication.
