Topics covered include art and aesthetics of design, collaboration in design, iterative design, learning by design, and design evaluation.
CEP 818: Creativity in Teaching and Learning
This course explores questions regarding psychological, motivational, and organizational aspects of creativity in education, such as: What does it mean to be creative? Does creativity reside in the individual, cultural, social or organizational context within which we live? What does the creative process look like? What is the relationship between creativity, play, humor, and learning? How might teachers use the processes of creation to support trans-literacy development and transformative learning? How are creativity and sustained professional growth related? In what ways could educational leaders use principles of creativity to initiate, implement, and sustain change across multiple educational contexts? The course also considers the implications of these questions for teaching and learning in the complex, evolving knowledge ecology in which we are living.
