The unit Creativity for Learning part of the PgCert in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education/Higher Education and the MA in Higher Education (also available as a stand-alone CPD unit) will be offered for the second time time at the end of September 2015 and over two terms. 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.
A review of the first iteration can be accessed below where you will also see some of the achievements of our colleagues. We have rich evidence that the unit has made a real difference to practitioners and their practice. Many have used the unit to experiment with innovative teaching approaches and as a stepping stone into pedagogical research. Their work has been disseminated internally and externally through conference contributions and publications and we are very proud of their development and achievements.

The Creativity for Learning unit is also available as an open course (see https://p2pu.org/en/courses/2615/creativity-for-learning-in-higher-education/). The facilitated part will run over 8 weeks starting on the 28th of September. We are very excited as we have teamed up with a group of postgraduate students and their tutor from the University of Macedonia to learn together in a distributed community as well as Prof. Norman Jackson who is well known for his work around Creativity in HE. Further colleagues from other institutions are joining us as we speak.
You are also very welcome to join this course, face-to-face and/or online as informal CPD without working for credits or use all or part of it for FLEX.
Warning! A wide open mind is needed!
