More than ever, colleges and universities are leveraging creativity to continue to offer value to their students, faculty and community stakeholders. But can creativity be harnessed to deal with the unprecedented challenges higher education is facing today. The Buzz Crew is joined by Dr. Natalie Nixon, author, global speaker and consultant, whose new book, The Creativity Leap: Unleash Curiosity, Improvisation and Intuition at Work, serves as a provocation, an inspiration, and an invitation to unleash the innate creativity that lies within each of us. Dr. Nixon shares her thoughts on creativity as a necessary force of change in higher education. Additionally, the Crew will do their usual tour through higher ed’s Quick Takes, and returns “Behind the Curtain” in this episode to examine the trends of prospective student interest in higher ed.
