Educating for creativity : a global conversation

Robert W. Kelly (Editor)
Bringing creativity into mainstream educational practice has become a mantra among educators. But what does creative practice in education really look like? Take a journey around the globe with educator and artist Robert Kelly to witness creative practice in action, with examples from early childhood to post-secondary levels. Through stories and real-life examples, discover the techniques of global leaders in creativity and design thinking, including India's Riverside School, Denmark's Kaospilots, and San Francisco's Brightworks. Educating for Creativity provides a theoretical framework for creative practice and creative development alongside a practical exploration of how to make creativity in education work from pioneers in the field. Educator and artist Robert Kelly is an associate professor at the University of Calgary with a special research focus on creativity in teacher education and understanding the nature of creative development.
