Creativity and its role and value in our work

Playflection (Cassidy, 2013):  A variety of ‘creative’ items on display and demo also led to more discussions. We had play-dough (I talked about what I think is my coining of the term “playflection” that I tweeted at a recent conference on Teaching Graduate Students to Teach), molding clay, squishy balls to toss around (which we did for non-astounding educational developer tips one day), and a 6-sided cube with different words on it, in this case, about ways to incorporate story and narrative into your class or seminar.
