Creative thinking and creative learning are two concepts that go hand in hand. Creative thinking is the ability to come up with new ideas, while creative learning is the process of using those ideas to create something tangible. The connection between these two concepts lies in their shared goal of creating meaningful solutions to problems or challenges.
Jeroen Lutters is an art and culture analyst and educational designer whose work focuses on the importance of integrating arts and humanities into contemporary education. He believes that artist educators should be seen as “wandering teachers”, who can help to bridge the gap between traditional academic learning methods with more creative approaches to teaching.
Lutter’s critical educational theory centers around art-based learning, which allows students to explore their own creativity while gaining a deeper understanding of subject material.
