【Session 1 (15:00-15:30)】
Title: The possibility of measuring creativity
Speaker: Dr. Iceman Leung
Dr. Leung Iceman is an active psychometric researcher, design educator and design professional. He obtained EdD (EdUHK), MSc (HKPolyU), BA (HKPolyU). Since 2006, he was appointed as Subject Specialist (2006-2012) at the HKCAAVQ; Certified Assessors for RPLSQF by VTC (Publishing and Printing); Chairman of Hong Kong Design Community (2010-2012); Certified as Adobe Certified Educator (2011).Dr Leung is the member of the Art Directors Club (New York), Design Research Society (UK), Psychometric Society, National Council on Measurement in Education and Founder of Hong Kong Design Directory (www.designdirectory.hk).
This study is motivated by the challenges noted in the literature in defining and assessing creativity in educational use. The Four Building Blocks Approach, a process for the development of measures or assessments, was applied in order to examine the unidimensional and multidimensional constructs of creativity in the context of design education. The Creativity Concepts Inventory (CCI) with three scales was developed. Two new constructs applying psychometric measures of creativity in conceptual knowledge were explored. A total of three groups – design professionals, design academics and general public of 290 participants responded to 128 items. Two new scales, the Consensus Pro-c Creativity Concept Scale (PROcK) and the Consensus HPS-Creativity Concepts Scale (HPScK), and an external scale Creative Self-Efficacy Scale (CSE) were developed in total raw score, recoded raw score and Rasch score. This study reveals that the psychometrics measure explored the differences of creativity between the design professional, design academic and general public. The results of this study provided a new direction to assess a potential Art & Design student or graduate to pursue the next stage of career development.
【Session 2 (15:30-15:50)】
Title: Dewey, Art, Community?
Speaker: Dr. Wong Samson Kei Shun
Wong Samson Kei Shun studied Arts Management and Music History & Culture at the University of Toronto and later pursued his Phd on the topic of community/socially engaged art from perspectives of education and psychology theories at Lingnan University. He is a member of Art for All, which is an organization working in community projects and training programmes with various communities in Hong Kong, China and Asian cities since 2001. Wong is recipient of the 2015 Asian Graduate Student Fellowship (National University of Singapore) and the Sino-British Fellowship Grant. Wong is lecturer at the Hong Kong Design Institute.
The field of ‘artist engagement in communities’ has expanded to a point where increasing numbers of institutions are training artists in this work. As such, the dialogue over its theoretical basis has gained a practical urgency.
One such candidate is the work of John Dewey, whom Finkelpearl (2013) described as being against “…the notion of the work of art as isolated and eternal, existing outside the flow of social life and contemporary context”. Elsewhere, the Standford Encyclopedia of Philosophy explains his aesthetics, that instead of delineating conditions and boundaries, he “…sees defining art in terms of experience as a matter of getting [people] to have more and better experiences with art”.
This talk will outline Dewey’s work in Art as Experience as a proposal of a theoretical basis for artist engagement in communities.
