  8. 8. i. the most practical idea (one that could be easily implemented)… …revisit thoughts/dreams of original course design …everyone could benefit from this non-threatening way of approaching the problem. It implies looking for a solution from a time when the course was someone or some people’s dream which has become a reality. There may be elements from the idea that have been lost in the implementation.
  9. 9. ii. the most disruptive idea (one that would make a huge impact, regardless of how feasible or affordable it is)… …redesign entire course …this would cause much heartache for those invested in what is already a new venture. It could be intensely personal and thwart creative ideation. It is a blue sky idea for some and ultra-conservative to others.
  10. 10. iii. your favorite idea (one idea that you are excited about for whatever reason... you don’t have to justify why)… …become a hub for creative industries globally …huge statement of intent for everyone, a challenge, a use of the course ideas to ideate towards an actual goal.
