The light bulb has become a visual symbol for a new thought or sudden insight. The narrative through-line of Ed Catmull’s book, Creativity, Inc., is a company’s pursuit of new ideas, with each chapter organized around a “light bulb” moment that gave rise to a creative breakthrough. The Light Bulb Challenge applies these principles to teaching by taking a simple object – a single incandescent light bulb – and using it to prompt creation of new ideas, or simply a new way of looking at things in your course. Nominations for the Light Bulb Challenge are due December 6. Click here to learn more.
