Creative Capacity in Vermont Students
A Guide to Help Vermont Educators and Community Partners Identify, Develop and Assess Creative Capacity in Students
Over six days in November, 2016, the Community Engagement Lab brought together five of the nation’s most experienced teaching artists, a leading researcher, and 85 committed Vermont educators, expanded learning providers and students to deepen their understanding of the ways creative capacity can be developed more effectively in their home towns and institutions.
That gathering, known as the Vermont Creative Learning Forum, led to this guide, which shares the Forum’s key insights and conclusions, and hopes to support the inspiring commitment across Vermont to fully advance creative capacity as a central priority of learning.
