Creativity and Experience: Enriching Teaching and Learning
In academia, many of us think of creativity as something that applies only to the arts. However, as teachers we actively participate in the creative process whenever we develop curricula, step into a classroom, or even engage with students online. In fashioning experiences using our own inventiveness, we help guide students to become creative and reflective thinkers. At the same time that we foster intellectual growth, we also enrich their lives, both now and in the future.
In designing, running, and evaluating the experiences we fashion for our students, we utilize a variety of creative practices and habits of mind.
For this FACET retreat, we are soliciting proposals in four categories that address creativity in teaching and learning:
- Five minute quick hits on creative strategies
- Thirty minute talks on inventive teaching ideas
- Seventy-five minute creative, classroom experiences, including learner-teacher interaction with participants returning to the role of student.
- Posters on creativity in teaching
