CTE: Theory to Practice: Teaching Creative Thinking

Center for Teaching Excellence, Thomas Cooper Library, Room 511
Oct 6, 2011 12:30 PM - 1:45 PM

 Walter Hanclosky, Associate Director, Center for Teaching Excellence

Are some of your students more creative than others? Is creative thinking a gift or can new thinking habits be developed if appropriate teaching habits are used? Teaching creative thinking requires students to explore topics to seek unique solutions. Such activities require a look beyond the normal variables used to solve problems. Successful instruction in this context draws associations between learning hierarchical philosophy and complimentary instructional practice. Come join the discussion relating theory to practice in teaching creative thinking. Participants are invited to bring a bag lunch or pick up a sandwich from the coffee shop on the main level of the library. Drinks and chips will be provided.
