Course Description

The Creative Classroom presents an original vision where teaching and learning are creativity-centered.  Curricula and classroom practices help educators develop and implement a new style of teaching where students are given freedom to explore within structures provided by the teacher. Asking questions and posing problems spark curiosity and encourage learners to think deeply and make meaningful connections to increase their creative potential.
