Learners Reconceptualising Education: Widening Participation through Creative Engagement?
Craft, Anna; Chappell, Kerry; Twining, Peter
Innovations in Education and Teaching International, v45 n3 p235-245 Aug 2008
Engaging imaginatively with how education is manifested is necessary for providers both in higher education and in preceding contexts and phases. Fostering dispositions for creativity in dynamic engagement and the consideration of pedagogy, curriculum, inclusion, policy and the management of change, requires innovative provision to span school, home, work and higher education learning. Reporting on Aspire Pilot, a National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts-funded initiative at The Open University, which sought to foster creativity of 11-18 year olds in considering future learning systems, this paper offers the beginning of a theoretical frame for considering learning, learners and systems in the Knowledge Age prioritising learner agency. Discussing findings, the paper explores implications for approaches facilitating widening participation in higher education. (Contains 2 tables and 4 notes.)
