CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT ABSTRACT

While submitting your abstract try to address the following aspects of creativity: What do you consider creative and why? How do you measure the “depth” of creativity? How do you teach creativity and assess the process of learning? How do you facilitate the moments of discovery? Do your methods and observations remain in alignment with any known theory of creativity or do you need to build your own theory? Your thoughts and observations on the role of creativity in interesting and retaining female and minority students in STEM are sought for and welcome.
