In our latest post, we hear from Dr Sara Jones, Senior Lecturer in Creative Interactive System Design. Sara works in the Faculty of Management at Cass Business School, where she researches the intersection between digital and creativity. Her work looks at the development, use, and evaluation of computational tools and technologies that can support and augment human creative and innovation processes in a range of different contexts.
This case study focuses on Sara’s experience of teaching on the Masters in Human-Computer Interaction Design and the Masters in Innovation, Creativity and Leadership. Sara combines teaching and research in innovative ways and shares an example of a JISC-funded project in which students studying on her creative design module contributed to research into the use of physical and digital tools in teaching.
