Developing Creativity in Our Learners: A Practical Approach

Allen Davenport

“Come on, use your imagination!”

Teachers frequently request this of their students while longing for a new thought or idea to burst forth from the mind of their learner. Indeed, creativity is something many teachers desire for themselves and desire their learners to possess.  The issue tends to be, though, that some view creativity as successful based solely on the product or the output with perhaps not enough attention focused on the process of creating. This workshop will look at different aspects of creativity and how we can practically teach and develop it with learners of all ages.
