Result, Investigation, Student, Environment- (Kaufman, Cropley, and Patston, 2016).

Our model develops, with students and teachers, the idea that we all have the capacity to be more creative and innovative. We need a combination of attitudes and skills. To enable Creative Education, we adapt the (physical and social) environment for optimal engagement. We allow students to be creative - taking risks and not fearing failure. We use problem solving methods both individually and in groups and assess the process and the results. 


Teaching Creative Education

All staff at Geelong Grammar School undertake professional learning and development in Creative Education using a blended learning approach. A series of online modules complement a series of “analogue” staff interactions. These interactions occur within and between learning areas, ensuring a cross-fertilisation of ideas and practice. The Creative Education process is further supported by Pop Up Pedagogy, in which teachers apply their learning through micro-trials in their classes.
