EVENT REPORT: Creativity in the Curriculum

With Special Guest Speaker, Professor Andy Penaluna

Professor Andy Penaluna
This half-day professional development event explored creativity in the curriculum, addressing in particular the following questions:
  • Can students in all disciplines be creative?
  • How can we encourage students to be creative?
  • How can we assess student creativity in Higher Education?

We were joined for this event by guest speaker Professor Andy Penaluna, who shared his experiences as a leading enterprise educator with a background in teaching creative subjects, taking us on a journey through our own brains, and encouraging participants to get up and move! Participants also had the opportunity to develop their own ideas for creativity in the curriculum through an interactive structured workshop.

Below you can see the Storify for the event:
