Abstract

This workshop will bring together researchers from the engineering design, engineering learning, and creativity communities to explore emerging theoretical and pedagogical issues related to creativity and cognition in engineering design. The need to produce a creative engineering workforce for the 21st century is well recognized. This workshop will help bridge the study of creativity (what is creativity in an engineering context) and cognition (how do engineering students become or act creatively). This workshop will lead to a framework for future research and strategies to prepare creative engineers.
