Teacher as Creator
Experiential education is an educational strategy that connects classroom theory with practice in the real world.
Integrating creativity education into arts, academic, and training programs can help learners develop their creative capacities—the skills and attitudes that contribute to imaginative, creative, and innovative thinking.
An innovative environment supports strengths-based teaching and learning. It offers students and teachers flexibility, agency, ubiquity, and connectedness.
