The Community of Practice project is a response to the University’s Strategic Plan 2016-2025. One of the primary missions of the strategic plan is to ‘prepare our students to become educators and professionals who can integrate theory and practice, and who are creative, innovative, ...’.The proposed CoP will gather academic and teaching colleagues who have the vision and passion to nurture our students with creative thinking. Through engagement in professional dialogues, sharing of experience and critical reviews, members of the CoP will develop pedagogies and instructional designs collectively that can effectively engage students in creative thinking. The pedagogies leveraged from the CoP will be shared, tested, documented and disseminated in the University so as to create ashared culture that values creative thinking skills and the teaching of them to students. Through increasing infusion and improvement of teaching of creative thinking skills in courses and dissemination of the pedagogies in different channels, the CoP will contribute to better performance of students in the GILO ‘Creative Thinking Skills’ of our University.
