Whole School CPD on Developing Creative Approaches to Transforming Pupil Learning Environments
In April 2012, HertsCreation offered a CPD day for our partner school, Woolenwick Infants and Nursery, led by the question:
‘How can small changes in our environment provoke a cycle of engagement and interaction?’
HertsCreation designed a CPD day to:
– encourage staff to identify their own creative skills and how they may reapply them
– identify opportunities to transform learning environments and approaches to learning
– discover creative strategies to support and develop existing curriculum delivery.
Our approach allowed staff to explore their own and pupil creativity through playfulness and structured activity. This led to planning for project working with Co-Director, Alex McIntyre supporting individual teacher experiments in their classroom inspired by the central enquiry question.
