The 3D Printing project was one that really introduced me to the class and warmed me up for what this class was going to become. Working with a group was interesting and I had struggles because the first group I was in was disassembled and split into new groups but I joined a new one and got going. The project demonstrated how many different types of creativity go into one thing and that a team with different types of members that have different skills can go a long way.
The creative person resume was an interesting activity to perform as homework because we had to jump into the mind of someone else and write from their perspective about their lives. It challenged us to research a creative person and hopefully lead us to their process of creativity. Discussing it in class demonstrated how creative people come from all over and take all kinds of paths to success.
The 30 Day Challenge was the one thing that stood out most to me about the class. It was one assignment that accounts for a lot of our grade, but besides that, it goes on in our minds for 30 days in a row. Not many assignments in classes do that to students. One assignment was on our mind for a month straight. That gave me much more appreciation for the assignment while reflecting on the semester in the class. I created a new word and definition for 20 days straight which is something I did not expect to be doing and is something I overestimated from the start. The 30 day challenge used all creative thinking tools every day for 30 days straight and that was my biggest challenge and will be my most meaningful activity when I reflect on the class in the future.
