Recently, a Columbia University Seminar took place in TC’s Gottesman Library to discuss the Creativity, Imagination, and Innovation in Education Symposium.

Hosted by Ron Gross, the conversation centers around the themes of the Symposium, and such questions as

  • What is creativity and why is it important?
  • What threatens the cultivation of creativity in today’s students?
  • Can creativity be fostered with rewards?
  • Can you measure creativity?

Professors Margaret Crocco and Lori Custodero, co-chairs of the Symposium, are guests at this University Seminar and contribute their thoughts on the topic, as well as preview some of the events that will take place at the Symposium.
