Over the past several decades, creativity has become a subject of heightened interest to the field of teaching (Plucker, Beghetto, and Dow, 2004). There is a strong, and generally agreed-upon conviction on the relevance and necessity of creativity in teaching (Amabile, 1996; Cropley, 2003; Sawyer, 2011; Sternberg, 1999). How that creativity should be instantiated in teacher education however is a more uncertain prospect. The role of creativity here is not always clear, and varies depending on schools and programs (Craft, 2000). To shed some further light upon these issues, the presentations in this symposium will focus on several different methods courses across different subject matters, examining some ways that creativity has been infused into the content and pedagogy of these courses. The presenters will provide a range of examples of how they have incorporated creative approaches in their pedagogy and the role that digital technologies play in this process.
