Chapter 3: Into the new: a creatively focused and technology fluent (CFTF) mindset for emerging doctoral contexts

Danah Henriksen and William Cain


To develop creative leaders in online and hybrid contexts, programs and coursework must provide learning opportunities using the creative and technological affordances of the medium, while also maintaining the strengths of existing scholarly norms. The authors reason that online and hybrid doctoral programs require a creatively focused and technologically fluent mindset on the part of faculty instructors and other program stakeholders. The authors also describe the context for change in emerging opportunities for online and hybrid doctoral studies, and propose a creative and flexible mindset for instructors, designers and developers in such programs. This chapter covers theoretical foundations in creative thinking, openness, and willingness to experiment or engage with the new.
