FACET Creativity and Experience
FACET is reimagining our retreat events by hosting a series of events this academic year. This reimagining is an ongoing process; however, we are continuing with the 2020 retreat theme, Creativity and Experience: Enriching Teaching and Learning. Our goal is to arrive at an engaging, renewing, and illuminating series. Due to the pandemic, we have decided to postpone the June 2021 Retreat and will continue this theme in June 2022. However, we will host a two day retreat in October 2021.
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.
