Abstract / Description

Existing definitions of creativity suggest that "creativity is the ability to produce work that is both novel (i.e. original, unexpected) and appropriate (i.e. useful, adaptive concerning task constraints)" (Sternberg and Lubart 1999) and that it is "communication of cultural value" and is related to convention, innovation, tradition and experience (Negus and Pickering 2004). Methods of assessing creativity vary from discipline to discipline and, in the examples of good practice, range from problem-based, project-based, jury-based, work placement and portfolio-approach methods to an approach that I will focus on in this essay, a learning contract.
