Creativity, like any other skill, can be nurtured through carefully crafted environments that place value on creativity as a learning goal. In this workshop, you’ll learn how effective assessment strategies promote student creativity and encourage creative confidence in your teaching practice. You’ll explore the question, “How can you assess creativity?” and discover standards used by educators that promote best practices in teaching and assessing creativity.

You’ll also complete a step-by-step project and learn how Adobe Acrobat DC can support creativity assessment with annotation features and comment tools. At the completion of this workshop, you’ll leave with your own personal creativity assessment tool that you can use immediately in your teaching practice.
