Drexel/Torrance Creativity Lecture/Webinar: Thursday October 8th!

Dear School of Education (SoE) Faculty, Staff and Students —

 If you were not aware, two of the programs within the SoE are the MS and Certificate Programs in Creativity and Innovation. The course work and program are closely linked to the SoE’s Drexel/Torrance Center for Creativity & Innovation. The Center is partially named after E. Paul Torrance considered by many to be the Father of Modern Creativity. Drexel’s center is only one a select few around the world that Dr. Torrance permitted to use his name before his death in 2003.

 Every year, the Drexel/Torrance selects a Drexel/Torrance Lecturer and invites her/him to give an hour lecture on creativity. This is a special year as the date for the Drexel/Torrance Lecture coincides on what would have been the 100th Birthday of E. Paul Torrance

Please click on the Torrance Lecture Flyer regarding the upcoming 2015 Drexel/Torrance Lecture being held on Thursday, October 8, 2015 from 6-8pm in the Drexel University’s Bossone Research Center (3104 Market Street) in the 3rd Floor Atrium.  The FREE lecture will begin at 6pm and be followed by a celebratory reception from 7:15 – 8pm. (The food for the Drexel/Torrance Lecture reception is always GREAT!) 

 The 2015 Drexel/Torrance Lecturer is Doug Hall, Founder and CEO of Eureka! Ranch International. Doug is a life-long inventor who once served as the Master Marketing inventor for Proctor & Gamble inventing and shipping a record nine innovations in 12 months. He’s worked with many other corporations since including American Express, Nike, and Walt Disney; Eureka! Ranch boasts of a ‘world-class’ 88% client repeat rate! The man is a very engaging speaker.

 The SoE hopes that you will be able to attend the event. The event will also be webcast live for those to far to make it into Philly, but you’ll unfortunately miss out on Torrance’s Birthday Reception!)  To RSVP to attend either in person or via the web, please complete the RSVP form by ckicking the following link and submitting the form:
