Up next on Worlds Awaiting - Rachel welcomes Dr. Richard E. West, professor of instructional psychology and technology at BYU. West has an expansive view of creativity. In the past, creativity was often seen as exclusive to writers, painters, and the like. But in today’s world – the attitude has shifted to include everyone. West shares how we can foster children’s creativity. Professionally, Dr. West researches how to teach group creativity and design thinking, and is co-chair of the BYU Creativity, Innovation, and Design group. In his personal life, he’s an avid reader across multiple genres, with a compelling desire to use literature to help his children become awesome future adults.
