bruce batterson, hastings college associate professor of business administration, will give an invited faculty lecture titled “creating a life” on wednesday, november 11, at 1:00 p.m. in french memorial chapel.
due to limited space, the lecture is open only to members of the campus community — although a video of the lecture will be posted on the college’s youtube channel and social media after the event.
“we often take a limited view of creativity as a rare talent that leads to artistic success,” batterson said, suggesting that creativity is a skill that anyone can learn, practice and improve.
“when applied to a variety of personal and professional activities, creative thinking may lead to a more successful life,” he said.
every year, hastings college students select two faculty members to present campus-wide lectures on the professors’ topic of choice. the invited faculty lecture is a long-lasting tradition that dates back to 1985 and it is considered a prestigious honor.
there will be another invited faculty lecture for the 2020-21 academic year. jessica allen-pickett, assistant professor of teacher education, will share her lecture on january 27, 2021.
