Abstract

: With the emergence of cross domain disciplines like outsourcing, we are witnessing a trend towards creative knowledge, rational application and innovation. The economy and society built on logical linear, computer like capabilities of ‘information age’ is now tending towards an economy and society built on the inventive, empathic, big-picture capabilities called ‘the conceptual age’. Creative industries are now moving from the margins to the mainstream of economy and policy thinking as they will create the jobs of the future. Thus, more and more people have realized that creative education is the mission of the education in the new century. However, the future is made, not of certainties, but is present in our thoughts and dreams. Therefore, the future belongs to people who will not limit their thinking in terms of realities, facts and knowledge; but search for the future in the rear view mirror, because; there, we can find the part of reality that can be verified. Thus, it is essential for creative students to change their mind set and build their innovative skills towards the upcoming era. Hence, this paper seeks the knowledge regarding these issues. The paper gives the general overview of the global trend, illuminates on the creative human resources needed in the upcoming era and finally proposed creative teaching approach for the conceptual age.
