Are you looking for ways to spur your students’ creativity inside and outside the classroom? Often in our classrooms we teach students to think, read, and write “critically” with an emphasis on logic, argumentation, and research. Students respond strongly and positively to the opportunity to be creative because they feel empowered to personally engage with course material.
This workshop will explore the interconnections between “critical” and “creative” thinking and identify a variety of strategies that can deepen and sustain students’ engagement. Together, we will deconstruct the binaries of critical/creative and creator/critic, and develop assignments that flow across these modes of knowledge production. Participants are asked to bring an assignment they would like to re-visit to engage students in new and exciting ways.
