Student life organizes a virtual creative workshop
The State of Ohio will offer students the opportunity to learn more about themselves and their creative personalities this fall.
In “LEAD Series: Discover Your Creative Type”, participants will take an assessment to determine where they fit among several different creative personality types during the virtual workshop Wednesday from 11am to 12pm, depending on the website. This event is one of many LEAD – Leaders Engaging in Actions for Development – Series, Anna Wagner, Senior Coordinator for Student Leadership Development, said.
Wagner said the LEAD series began in the spring of 2019 and fosters personal development while helping students become more familiar with campus resources to help them with their studies and extracurricular activities.
“The LEAD Series is a series of open-access leadership development workshops that are run by the management team and student activities and available to any student on campus who hopes to learn more about their leadership skills,” Wagner said.
Participants engage in different activities to explore their creative strengths, especially with regards to leadership, said Brian Menard, Administrative Associate for Leadership Programs. The exercises include free writing, drawing, and group discussions where participants can learn how they can apply creativity to their classroom work, leadership skills, and student organizations.
Menard said the workshop was intended to “help students identify their strengths, values, and from there, identify how they can apply them to the community in the state of Ohio.”
According to website, there are 10 sessions in the series. Freshmen can use the workshop to meet the requirements of their First Year Success Series event.
Student activities will lead Leadership week during the first week of October, Wagner said. This is a week-long program across all Ohio State campuses that will explore the five themes of leadership: career development, community engagement, inclusion, personal exploration, and well-being.
