Developing creativity in higher education : an imaginative curriculum by Norman Jackson( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 277 libraries worldwide
Our ability to imagine and then invent new worlds for ourselves is one of our greatest assets and the origin of all human achievement, yet the importance of creativity in learning and achievement is largely unrecognized in a higher education world that places more value on critical and rational thinking. It is a vision of a higher education world in which students' creativity is valued alongside more traditional forms of academic achievement that provides the driving force for this book. Developing Creativity in Higher Education has grown out of the Imaginative Curriculum network-based collaborative learning project. It is the first book to systematically address the issue of creativity in higher education. It features: · an analysis of the problem of creativity in higher education and rich perspectives on the meanings of creativity in different teaching and subject contexts · illustrative examples of teaching and assessment strategies, augmented by web-based, curriculum guides and aids to encourage teachers to examine their own understandings of creativity in order to help students to develop their own creativity · practical advice on how to foster creativity at an individual and an institutional level Developing Creativity in Higher Education will appeal to teachers, educational developers, and institutional managers who want to enrich the higher education experiences of their students and enable them to develop more of their potential
