Creativity in the Classroom: Engaging Students in the Creative Process

Creativity in the Classroom: Engaging Students in the Creative Process

Educause 2020 Virtual Presentation

Amos Gutierrez, ACU Adobe Ambassador, and Dr. Marisa Beard, Director of Educational Technology and the Innovation Foundry, present on the topic, Creativity in the Classroom: Engaging Students in the Creative Process. Amos and Marisa explore what creativity is, why it is important, and what ACU is doing to help students engage in the creative process.

Creativity plays an important role in our lives both professionally and personally. It allows us to think differently, to discover more effective and efficient ways to work and serve others, to invent, and to solve problems. It is not an easy task to engage in the creative process, to try something new, to take risks, and to not fear failure, but it is a worthy task and a needed task.”
