Grow Your Skills: Creative Teaching in STEM subjects

Grow Your Skills: Creative Teaching in STEM subjects

Overview

The changing landscape of higher education is encouraging many educators to focus less on knowledge acquisition and more on developing transferable skills in our students. ‘Creativity’ is one of the most sought-after attributes by employers, yet educators in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine) have often found it difficult to move away from traditional lecture and tutorial formats. This symposium will provide a forum for exchanging ideas on encouraging and fostering creativity, both within curricula and through extracurricular provision.

Key learning points for participants

  •  To explore the benefits and risks of boosting creativity in STEMM education
  •  To showcase examples of creative teaching and learning
  •  To share ideas and techniques to encourage creativity
  •  To discuss how to recognise and reward creativity within a performance-driven culture
