Welcome to the Creativity Café: Developing a network of shared creative teaching practice amongst academic staff

By Josie Harvey


This paper presents the findings and developments to date of a TQEF (Teaching Quality\ud Enhancement Fund) project on Creativity and Innovation in Teaching in Higher Education. The\ud purpose of this project is to develop and promote creative and innovative teaching across the\ud University.\ud Findings from the project suggest that academic staff want to share their creative and innovative\ud teaching with colleagues from all disciplines, and that, presently, little is known about creativity\ud elsewhere in the University. Creativity Cafés have been organised to give academic staff an\ud opportunity to work together informally, to share best practice and germinate ‘Communities of\ud Practice’ (Wenger, 1998) around four broad areas of creativity that have been identified.\ud The positive feedback from these events has been overwhelming and the sharing of good\ud practice has engaged staff with different perspectives of creativity across the curriculum
