Unprofessional Development: Creativity as a Habit In (and Beyond) the Classroom

  • Contra Costa County Office of Education 77 Santa Barbara Road Pleasant Hill, CA, 94523 United States

Unprofessional Development is a call to put creativity at the root of all learning. This full day workshop will engage participants with creative thinking both in and beyond the classroom. The first half of the workshop invites participants to consider why it's often so difficult to start, to practice and to maintain a creative routine. By the end of the morning, participants will have completed a design challenge and will take away a collection of readings full of encouragement and inspiration from artists, chefs, athletes and others who know how difficult it is to do this work. The afternoon will focus on building a toolkit of methods for creative pedagogy. Participants will leave with a personal toolkit of readings, case studies, planning tools and activities that can be used in the classroom immediately.

Cost: $110. Lunch will be provided.
