PechaKucha Session 1: Creativity in the Classroom: Transforming Templates Into Tour De Force -- 18

11:30 - 12:45 on Tuesday, 11 September 2012 in 2.220

This Pecha Kucha session will provide participants with an understanding of why creativity in education matters and why education has underserved students in this area, illustrate a few creative ideas around content delivery, assessment, and collaboration, and apply all of this back to the classroom. The theoretical framework for this presentation will include research from visionaries such as Sir Ken Robinson, Dr. Chris Dede, and more.

The presenter uses considerable technology-based initiatives in his own classroom and this session is important for staff wanting to take their course to the next level. From an immersive environment to a serious game to rich, technology based assets, this presentation will give a taste of what is possible and what is desirous to make education a serious agent of change, rather than a necessary hurdle for students.

Participants can expect to leave the presentation with at least 3 creative ideas which can be implemented immediately in their ownclassrooms or programs of study, with a number of potential creative ideas to explore over time, regardless of their subject.

Finally, academic staff will leave with a very large list of free web-based assets, all of which can be used to increase the propensity for learning within their classroom, either online or on-ground, regardless of subject matter.
