Questions: Rachel@creativelearning.company This graduate course is designed for Pre-K-Grade 5 teachers who have previous experience implementing creative learning microworlds in their classrooms. Part creativity studio and part design lab, course participants will experience this workshop as both learners and designers. The goal of this course is for participants to build on their prior knowledge and experience with creative learning and design microworld units to use in their individual classrooms. Participants will implement, document, and assess the activities they design with their students. For teachers who completed the first level of this graduate course in 2022, there is the option to develop a new microworld or continue to develop the microworld designed previously. Course meetings will include design time, discussion, problem-solving, and reflection. Special topics will include: Integrating creative technology tools, using creative learning to enhance student belonging in the classroom, and community collaborations. This is a small group experience, where participants will have input on both the content and the pace of the course.
