|Jane Spiro – ‘Creating Space: Research into Practice, Practice into Research’|
This webinar will ask questions about ‘creativity’ in language learning: what it means, why it matters, how are research and practice connected? Are other terms more useful to explain this? It will draw together research from multiple fields such as education, psychology and the humanities, second language acquisition and TESOL to explore what teaching might learn from creativity research, and vice versa. The participants will be engaged during the session in mini-research enquiries which they can take further into their own classrooms and with their own colleagues, answering the question: what does a ‘creative’ classroom really look like, and why does it matter?
