  • The purpose of the Role Model Consultation Assignment is for students to gain a deeper understanding of the practice of creative individuals with a view towards applying these insights to improve creative practice. Students will capture insights, learnings, and reflections in a short 4-5 page (1000 word minimum), paper, 12 point font, APA format; complete with a separate coverpage that includes a word count. Students will also include a separate bibliography with at least 2 academic sources (that are cited in body of the paper). To complete this assignment, students will arrange a 15-25 minute consultation session with a role model of their choosing. Students should structure the questions for their consultation around key points of interest (as defined by the student; aka. What do you want to learn from this person in terms of creative/innovative performance in the 21st Century? What key skills might you develop/focus upon?). While I don’t wish to tell you what to ask, here are some prompts you may choose to focus their consultative discussions on the following:
    • What, if anything, does the role model do in their practice to prepare for/entice creative insight?
    • What practices or techniques does the role model believe are important for creativity and creative performance?
    • What dispositions, aptitudes, or mindsets does the role model believe are important for creativity and creative performance?
    • What trends does the role model feel are shaping their field/ the future of their field?
    • What advice does the role model have for you in terms of improving your own creative performance and preparing for the future?
    • How does these insights align with/support/ or compare with the literature we’ve covered to date on creativity and creative performance?
