This book contains an evidence-based pedagogic guide to enable any motivated teaching/training professional to be able to teach effectively and creatively. It firstly summarises the extensive research field on human psychological functioning relating to learning and how this can be fully utilised in the design and facilitation of quality learning experiences. It then demonstrates what creativity actually 'looks like' in terms of teaching practices, modelling the underpinning processes of creative learning design and how to apply these in lesson planning. The book, having established an evidence-based and pedagogically driven approach to creative learning design, extensively focuses on key challenges facing teaching professionals today. These include utilising information technologies in blended learning formats, differentiating instruction, and developing self-directed learners who can think well. The main purpose of the book is to demystify what it means to teach creatively, explicitly demonstrating the principles of good pedagogic design and communication strategies that underpin such activity. The message is clear - creative teaching competence is both a highly useful and a learnable capability.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is wise, thought-provoking, and peppered with powerful quotes.  Written using stories from his wide personal experience, the author vividly illustrates his 10 core principles of evidence-based teaching, and shows how to make these sensitive to any context.  The book demonstrates how to become a creative and effective teacher, including the use of blended learning, and also looks insightfully at how teachers themselves learn and develop as professionals. A great guide to becoming an effective teacher." (Geoff Petty, one of Britain's leading experts on teaching methods, author of "Teaching Today and Evidence-Based Teaching: A Practical Approach")
