Description

A public lecture on teaching and assessing creativity

Centre for the Edge is proud to host James C. Kaufman, PhD, professor of educational psychology at the University of Connecticut and creativity & education expert, in a public lecture where he will discuss the challenges of teaching and assessing creativity.

Creativity is a core skill in the 21st century, and has consequently been decomposed into a set of teachable capabilities and skills integrated into curricula. However, realising creativity in practice requires us to address a broader range of factors, such as the work or learning environment and the individuals personality, cognitive strengths, and motivation. Even the way that we think of creativity – is it just for artists or geniuses? – matters a great deal. We nee to develop a broader understanding of creativity if we’re to avoid the trap of treating creativity as yet another subject in an already crowded curricula.

Dr Kaufmans lecture will leverage his cutting edge psychological research to debunk common misconceptions about creativity, describe how learning environments can support creativity, while providing insights into teaching and assessing creativity within the established curriculum

The event will also be used to launch the Australian adaptation of Dr Kaufmans book on creativity, Teaching for Creativity in the Australian Curriculum Classroom. Copies will be available for purchase at a discount.

Light refreshments will be available before the lecture.
