Creativity in the Classroom:

Fostering Student Learning Through Creative Language Experiences

July 11–15, 2016

Target Audience
: Elementary to postsecondary foreign language and ESL teachers.


Creativity is a way of thinking about learning and teaching that emphasizes collaboration, problem- solving, intrinsic motivation, discovery, and an openness to new ideas. This workshop will examine the connection between multilingualism and creativity, and explore strategies to increase engagement in the classroom. This institute is designed for foreign language and ESL teachers who want to promote creativity in their classroom while simultaneously improving learner's target language proficiency. Strategies will emphasize auditory, visual, kinesthetic, and tactile learning through novel student-centered projects, targeting language objectives at each student's interest and readiness level. Teachers will also learn how to inspire creativity in their students and integrate it meaningfully into daily lesson plans.
