When Students Teach Creativities: Exploring Student Reports on Creative Teaching

“When Students Teach Creativities: Exploring Student Reports on Creative Teaching” is an article written by Kari Holdhus and published in Qualitative Inquiry in 2018.

In this article, Kari Holdhus shares a journey of research on student teacher reports regarding creativity pedagogies. The empirical material comprises student reports on teaching for creativity. The text draws on the literatures of creativities, creativity pedagogies, and professional improvisation, inspired by a backdrop of literature on narrativity and narrative writing. The text aims to discuss how creativity pedagogies can take place in different practical surroundings and to provide an example of how teaching in higher education can both contribute to research and be research-based. The following research question is asked: What characterizes student teachers’ reports on designs and choices when facilitating creative learning processes, and which interpretations and reflections do these reports evoke within their teacher? In comparing student papers, Holdhus has conceptualized their common features into the following concepts: context, skills, design, and trust. Within the text, each of these concepts is addressed through example narratives extracted from the student reports. Holdhus concludes that a combination of aspects from each of the four concepts can be said to construct a liminal room of immersion.
