We are delighted to have Prof. Norman Jackson @lifewider1 with us this week to “Explore Creativity in Development” together.
Norman Jackson (@lifewider1) is Emeritus Professor at the University of Surrey and is Founder of the ‘Lifewide Education’ and ‘Creative Academic‘ (@academiccreator) educational networks and resource hubs. His interest and involvement in creativity in higher education began in 2001 when he established the ‘imaginative curriculum network’ to connect people who were interested in supporting students’ creative development; this cause has now been taken up by Creative Academic.
Norman provided the following introduction for the tweetchat:
Development is the fundamental process that enables everyone to change themselves and to bring about significant changes in the world around them. As an intentional act it involves a process to achieve or master certain things and a trajectory along which certain things change, including ourselves. Our developmental projects through which we try to accomplish new things, provide the host for much of our individual and collective creativity and this LTHEchat explores how, what, why and when creativity emerges from and through our own developmental projects – be they personal, professional and/or organisational. The conversation is formed around our experiences of development but we want to use any insights gained to inform our educational and professional development designs and practices.
