The "Art" of Creative Teaching: Implications for Higher Education
Gibson, Robyn
Teaching in Higher Education, v15 n5 p607-613 Oct 2010
Richard Florida's "The rise of the creative class" (2002) delivered a strong wake-up call to higher education institutions worldwide. By linking creativity to technological innovation and economic prosperity, Florida argued that universities and colleges should nurture creativity in their students. But for many years, the higher education enterprise has been criticised for dampening creativity rather than fostering it. This paper explores the subversive nature of creativity, the value of creative teaching and proposes a number of strategies higher education should consider if they hope to graduate the future leaders of twenty-first century society.
