CARLOTA TORRENTS | Muse of creativity

Carlota Torrents is a professor at the National Institute of Physical Education of Catalonia and a member of the Complex Systems in Sport research group. With her doctoral thesis, Carlota was one of the pioneers in bringing dynamical systems theory to training. She has published dozens of articles on creativity, complexity, and movement, and recently published one of the most educational books I’ve ever read. I love one of her key principles as a teacher is: “If your students don’t surprise you, you’re doing something wrong.” Listen to the conversation to find out how. It is in Catalan, you have it with English subtitles on the YouTube video of the episode.
