Cultivating Creativity in Education
The course is for teachers and trainers in senior schools, VET and HE in a wide variety of subjects including STEM & IT, entrepreneurship, languages and startups.
It is in an exploitation of the VISConti project in which partners identified assessment criteria for the assessment of students' projects from technical, economic and creativity points of view. The training is also apt for professionals and Adult Education providers that are open to innovative professional development. VISConti was an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership for VET under the leadership of the Norges Teknik-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet of Norway that has then gone further to form a larger Community of Practice in the new UPPScience project. Schools taking up this option join the network and open doors to new cooperation opportunities beyond this training.
A statement that inspires VISConti is that Creativity cannot be taught but it can be fostered, encouraged or tapped.
