July 1 – Creativity in EAP

wallpaper1206472

What does it mean to be creative in EAP? One side of the coin is the creativity demonstrated by teachers in their flexibility regarding the widely varying needs of our students; another side is the creativity that we encourage of our students in what they do with the skills we teach. It’s the latter I find more fascinating a topic.

Key questions that came from the chat:

  • Is this creativity preparing our students for the tasks they will do in their disciplines?
  • Does it relate to successfully completing weeder courses (i.e. early year massive courses designed to weed out the weak)?
  • How do we create platforms for our students to use their creativity while at the same time keeping them grounded on realistic university tasks?
  • Is there a place for creative assessment?
