Educators and education policy has increasingly acknowledged the value of creativity and creative approaches to education in particular. However, despite the recommendation that teachers adopt creative teaching techniques, few guidelines for the application of creative methods are available. Therefore, sharing practice is essential for creative education to become more widespread. Creative Education, Teaching and Learning highlights a range of innovative teaching techniques successfully employed by teachers from a range of disciplines and education levels. For example, chapters highlight the use of social networking sites, virtual games, film, book groups, board games, story telling, teddy bears, archival data, comedy, and art within education. The book also considers the extent to which students can extend their traditional role through the provision of peer support or employment as Research Interns or Teaching Assistants and is intended to support teachers from all disciplines, working with students at all levels.
