Pranav Naik B. Design in Architecture, B. Creative Intelligence and Innovation. Pranav: "Creative Intelligence to me is innovation, it's complexity, its originality, and its art in a sense to me."
Eleanor Crumpton B. Design in Integrated Product Design, B. Creative Intelligence and Innovation. Eleanor: "For me creative intelligence and innovation has really changed from what I originally thought it was, to what it is now. I really had no idea what i was expecting, but now I know its really about thinking in new and different ways." (Moving images of Eleanor engaging in group work and speaking with peers in a classroom setting) (moving images of Lee Hunter from Google speaking with microphone to the summer school class in a collaborative lecture space)

Becky McCreath B. Engineering (ICT Engineering), B Creative Intelligence and Innovation. Becky: "Sometimes we're kinda talking about trying to explain how its a whole new way of thinking, so kind of completely different to your core degree. You're learning all of these different problem solving methods, just different ways to look at any problem, which will go with any degree that you're studying, any core discipline and just take it apart.

Lee Hunter Head of Marketing Innovation, Google Asia-Pacific
Lee: "Creativity and innovation to me is all about a fascination with ideas and exploring what's new." (moving images of Lee speaking with microphone to the summer school class in a collaborative lecture space)
(Moving image of BCII students Jasper Ryan and Eloise Walker sitting together in a classroom at UTS) Jasper Ryan B. Engineering (Civil), B. Creative Intelligence and Innovation.
Jasper: "We focus more on how we're accessing the knowledge, rather than what particular knowledge we are accessing. We can actually say OK, what's this new development and how can we adapt to it? and how can we access this new knowledge while we are in the industry... It makes us a lot more versatile."
(moving images of students engaging in discussion in a creative agency space and then casually chatting in a collaborative lecture theatre)
Dominica Ingui BA. Communication (Public Communication), B. Creative Intelligence and Innovation. Dominica: "I think that creativity in entrepreneurship is particularly interesting in the current social climate because of globalisation. A lot of industries are becoming melded together, there is a lot of cross disciplinary action.
(moving images of Dominica writing notes in a notebook, engaging with another BCII student and referring to a digital screen together)
Eloise Walker BA. Communication (Media Arts and Production), B Creative Intelligence and Innovation. Eloise: "I feel like BCII is a brilliant way to network with people from many different industries.
Pranav: Creative intelligence really becomes a huge platform where you can showcase, explore and discuss your work with people of likeminded ideas.
Daniel Wasilewsky B. Business (Marketing and Management), B Creative Intelligence and Innovation. Daniel: "I find creative intelligence amazing, because I always asked the questions "Why?" and "How can I improve that?". It was always difficult to find people that also believed that. Creative Intelligence allows me to meet people that actually don't just see the world as it is, but see how the world could be."
(moving image of Annabel engaging in group work and typing notes on a laptop computer.)
Annabel Vici B Science, B Creative Intelligence and Innovation. Annabel: "If you have ever thought about something, thought about the way problems are being solved and thought about how you would do it differently… then I think BCII is a really great course for that, because it challenges you to push the solutions that we're coming up with currently.
Ellen Wiltshire BA. Communication (Media Arts and Production), B Creative Intelligence and Innovation. Ellen: I've used methods from BCII that I would use in a completely different way in the course itself, but I've taken it away to my core degree - Media Arts - and applied it to story telling techniques. I've used it in so many facets in other areas of my life as well.
Jarnae Leslie B. Design in Interior and Spatial Design,
B Creative Intelligence and Innovation. Jarnae: The CI mindset is compassionate, its understanding, its open-minded, its curious, its investigative, it pulls things apart - and not necessarily in a destructive way - but to pull it back together again.
Jake Bayssari BA. Communication (Media Arts and Production), B Creative Intelligence and Innovation. Jake: "This is the first time you are able to go into a space, into an area and receive a project, where your curiosity feeds the solutions, feeds the answers, feeds the questions.
Becky: … and we're so equipped to be those change agents, not only… We question all of these things and we come up with ideas and we get to push them. We get to be like, the forefront of innovation, taking all of these ideas out...
Jake: We're the first frontier in change… that's what I'd like to say - and you'll see our names in headlines ten years from now… (Jake gestures with hand indicating a headline above his head) "Change Agents - Jake and Becky" (laughter and smiles from Jake, Becky and film crew)
