CREATIVITY & EDUCATION (UCL MODULE)
STUDENT ARTEFACTS EXHIBITION
These artefacts are expressions from a group of UCL students enrolled in the UCL Creativity & Education module led by Dr. Julia Jeanes. These artefacts explored the multifaceted aspects of 'creativity' and the personal interpretation of 'creativity' from each and every student from the module.
BA Education Studies – Creativity and Education Module
(IOE, UCL – Department of Education, Practice and Society)
"The aim of the BA Education Studies - Creativity and Education module is to introduce students to the key themes, theories and debates in the interdisciplinary research on creativity (e.g. anthropology, psychology and sociology of creativity). It considers the extent to which creativity can be taught/ learned as well as exploring the manifestations of creativity in different domains such as science, the arts and everyday life.
Assessment for the module is a small-scale research project. To provide students with a deeper understanding of the module readings and to support the module assessment, we asked the group this year to collectively create an artefact, a series of visual images or a blog that imaginatively expresses their personal interpretations of the module literature.
The Autumn term 2021 for many students and staff, with hybrid teaching, requirements to self-isolate and for some delays in returning to the UK, was a real challenge. We do hope that students found project-based learning enjoyable and helpful when returning to the classroom on campus, to engage with the module readings and each other."
