We are also putting together a special issue journal, details below ..plenty of time for submissions and also a call for reviewers

“Our Creative Self: understanding perceptions of creativity in learning and teaching”

The purpose of this special edition of the PRISM journal is to showcase the unique journeys that have led the contributors to embrace and discover their creative identities, in order to improve the lived experience of higher education for both learner and facilitator. Through a series of reflective accounts, original research articles and position papers, presented in a variety of formats, the special edition will challenge the notion that creativity is a niche practice that belongs only to those who define themselves as ‘creative’. Through exploring your perceptions and experiences of creativity, we hope to provide insights into how creative approaches are developed and disrupt barriers to the creative process.

We encourage you to analyse and reflect on your creative practices, to illustrate your unique path to becoming a congruent educator. Your stories and journeys will equip the reader with the necessary tools to develop congruence between their personal and professional selves, in order to foster critical awareness, curiosity and confidence in themselves and their learners.
