Upcoming CTE Fellow Workshop: Creativity in the Classroom

I am working with the Center for Teaching Excellence as part of the CTE Faculty Teaching Fellows..

The theme of my series is what will our students look like in 5 years – how do we need to change to be ready for them.. We have two upcoming presentations with one guest speaker that you can be part of..

Tuesday January 24th – we are having a public lecture at 7:15 PM in Room 334 in the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education..

 

Rabbi Michael Cohen is known in K-12 circles for his workshops on creativity and sketchnoting.  He will give us all (both K12 and Higher Education) insight on how we can better reach students by incorporating creativity in the classroom.

He is going to do a 1 hour workshop on involving creativity in teaching.

Tap Into YOUR Creative Mind

We are all creative, some artists, musical, and almost everyone even those who can barely get out a stick figure are visual learners. Come learn about how visual learners can be supported through creative projects, especially sketchnoting. Learn the creative end, the research, and most of all come ready to have fun!

Why this workshop for the CTE Fellow Program 

More and more students are finding the ability to incorporate creativity in their learning.  When they come to OU – will they be hitting a wall and forced back into traditional teaching methods?  Rabbi Michael Cohen motivates and inspires teachers to find ways to incorporate creativity in the classroom – and by understanding what students are doing before college – you can tap those experiences in your classroom projects.
