Creativity for Learning unit and open learning ecology starting in January

Creativity for Learning - web banner

The brand new unit Creativity for Learning part of the PgCert and the MA in Academic Practice (also available as a stand-alone CPD unit) will be offered for the very first time in January 2015. This is an excellent opportunity to explore and experiment with more novel pedagogical approaches, theories and practices, fully tailored to your professional needs and aspirations. You will be able to discuss creativity for higher education learning and teaching with colleagues from across the university, reflect on your current practice and identify opportunities to become more creative and adventurous in your  teaching to create stimulating learning experiences for and with your students.

We have joined up with Prof. Norman Jackson who has done extensive work in this area. See also the Creative Academic site at http://www.creativeacademic.uk/.

The unit is also available as an open learning ecology (see https://p2pu.org/en/courses/2615/creativity-for-learning-in-higher-education/) and signalises the start of the longitudinal and multi-institutional research project ‘Creative Academics‘ in which we are exploring conceptions of personal creativity and how they change through purposeful professional development.

Warning! A wide open mind is needed!
