Everyone Can Create in Higher Ed

According to the 2019 Common Sense Census, the average teenager spends over seven hours a day on a mobile device; however, only 12 minutes of that time are spent creating. 

This book contains examples of projects meant to spark both creativity and advocacy in our undergraduate learners. While these projects were designed for an introduction to education course, they could be adapted for any course for adult learners in which your goal is to enhance student agency and creativity.

Book cover for Everyone Can Create in Higher Ed
We live in a world in which we are constantly inundated with media, making it incredibly important for learners of all ages to become critical and responsible consumers of information. It is equally important that we ignite a passion for creating. In our introductory education course at the University of Central Arkansas, our goal is to instill in our students a sense of advocacy for education. Not all students who enroll in this course will become professional educators. Therefore, the purpose of the course is to help students become informed members of their communities, better equipped to navigate the vast amount of opinions and information regarding the field of education and equally equipped to share their informed opinions with others in hopes of supporting K-12 students, teachers, and schools.

The purpose of your course is wonderful!

…to help students become informed members of their communities, better equipped to navigate the vast amount of opinions and information regarding the field of education and equally equipped to share their informed opinions with others in hopes of supporting K-12 students, teachers, and schools.

And thanks for the link to your book Jessica (and Michael). I’m heading to the chapter on Drawing to Learn, something I struggle with.
