Abstract

Over the past several decades, creativity has become a subject of heightened interest to the field of teaching (Plucker, Beghetto, and Dow, 2004). Research has shown that teachers, as mentors and role models, are principal constituents in developing student creativity (Renzulli, 1992). Lilly & Bramwell-Rejskind (2004) suggested that teachers who motivate creativity in their students also modeled creative or divergent thinking themselves. How that creativity should be instantiated in teacher education however is a more uncertain prospect. To shed some further light upon these issues, the presentations in this symposium will focus on several different methods courses across different subject matters, examining some ways that creativity has been infused into the content and pedagogy of these courses. The presenters will provide a range of examples of how they have incorporated creative approaches in their pedagogy and the role that digital technologies play in this process.
