Applied Creative Thinking Overview


This New Forums key forum is devoted to teaching applied creative thinking in the new millennium. Many talk about creativity and provide the justification for adding creative thinking as a student learning outcome. We wish to focus on applying creativity to the teaching and learning process. We might ask, “does anyone truly believe the world’s problems are going to be solved by students with only a high proficiency in common core competencies?” With student learning outcomes as a goal, we strive to rethink teaching and learning to include creativity.
