Creativity seems to be an underrated attribute in the classroom. We do not often mention it in our outcomes, nor do we often assess it. Yet, unleashing creativity can bring an energy to the classroom that is virtually unmatched. It requires integrating material that allows for transformative learning. We must at the very least (re)define spaces that allow for creative engagement and recognize the role of work and persistence in the creative process. This can involve assignments, activities, and collaborative learning that allow for difference and outside-the-box thinking. The successful completion of these initiatives can take multiple forms.
