4th Educational Symposium
Teaching Creativity

June 17, 6-9:30 p.m., Anatolia College, Raphael Hall

What is creativity and which people are creative? Is creativity designated by the answers people give or by the questions they ask? Do creative people have answers to problems and do they seldom have the wrong answers? No, but they regularly question the status quo, invent possible answers, imagine and think about improvements and alternatives.

We characterize young, school-age children as being typically very creative and confident in that they can sing, dance and draw. Yet within a few years of schooling these children no longer feel creative or competent. School is often the cause of their lack of confidence as children become socialized and aware of their own limitations.

Teaching creativity to our students is vitally important. But can creativity be taught or developed in children? How can teachers help students unleash their creativity? The 4th Anatolia College teAch Symposium organized by the Anatolia College Instructional Design and Development Department aims to deal with the issue of creativity asking teachers to reflect on what they are doing that tends to foster the creativity of their students without hindering their scientific way of thinking. Talks and presentations will be made related to scenarios and strategies teachers found effective in nurturing their students’ creativity.
All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
