This collection of essays explores a series of challenges and contexts for Creative Partnerships and the creative and education sectors in general.
Topics discussed include reflections on current policy perspectives on creativity in education, artists’ perspectives on art practice and pedagogy, ‘Studio Thinking: A Model of Artistic Mind, the role of new technology in creative learning’ and the assessment of creative learning.
While the authors may not offer solutions to all of the challenges they raise, in exploring and unpicking the notion of creative learning they model the essence of the process as it plays out in schools. Each author refreshes and renews the interrogation of an idea in the same way creative practitioners, teachers and young people might re-imagine the curriculum within schools.
In February 2008 Creative Partnerships convened a seminar of experts to tease out and investigate the notion of creative learning. This booklet publishes the papers presented at this event and a more general discussion of Creative Learning.
