In a world characterized by change and complexity, today’s students face an unpredictable future. Being able to think creatively and adapt to change is essential for teachers and learners in creative problem solving and innovation.
Creativity is a highly sought-after capacity in many learning discourses. It is often positioned as vital to education futures, given the complex problems and settings that students face. However, an often-ignored aspect of educational creativity is its connection to risk-taking. Risk-taking, enacted through a willingness to try new ideas and possibilities, and engage with the potential for failure, is key to the iterative nature of creativity and learning.
Join Dr. Punya Mishra and Dr. Danah Henriksen as they explore creativity and risk-taking in teaching and learning.
