This paper discusses examples for an 'explicit education' of different modes of creativity and different methodologies for initiating creative processes. The awareness of creative methodology is not only important for professionals in the creative arts (composers, performing artists and art practitioners) but also for developers of tools that support creative processes. This article considers the background and context of the more general issues of creativity in higher education and then moves on to how a hands-on workshop was developed specifically for computer music / music technology related degrees enabling experiential learning of a wide variety of creative methodology. It explores the pedagogical methodologies behind the workshop, the running of the workshop itself, providing examples of specific exercises.
