Hokanson presents paper at Association for Educational Communications and Technology

Brad Hokanson's (Graphic Design) paper, "Circadian Rhythms and Creativity," was a featured research presentation at the recent conference of theĀ Association for Educational Communications and Technology in Orlando. The paper builds on research conducted in Hokanson's Creative Problem Solving course (DHA 1111) and will be published in the proceedings.

The essential findings of the research are that creativity varies throughout the day, with a consistent early morning low point for adults about 5 a.m., whereas with 18 year olds, this low point may be about 9 a.m. Breakfast was also found to significantly improve morning creativity.

Hokanson also presented a workshop on creativity at the conference.
