Quick Hits for Creativity in the Classroom (expected to publish Fall 2024)
With the proven effectiveness of active learning and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) pedagogies, we see the appeal and understand the need for creativity in the classroom. Additionally, we champion diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and belonging (DEIJB), and these values increasingly inform teaching practices to make our classrooms welcoming and empowering places and spaces, whether in person or online. As these effective teaching practices and values are necessary for ensuring students’ wellbeing and persistence and demand creative approaches, this book will provide university and college instructors with teaching strategies, digital tools, materials, ideas, assignments, and the like to foster engagement with as many students as possible while supporting faculty and student agency in the learning process. Creativity is highly valued in and of itself, and the cultivation of it in the classroom, leading to experiences and artifacts that students can highlight, will enhance students’ opportunities to demonstrate their growth and what they have learned inside and beyond the classroom.
