BTtoP’s Fall 2018 Newsletter (

The Power of a Creative Mindset in Higher Education, by Caitlin Salins, Project Manager, Bringing Theory to Practice

In this issue of our newsletter, our authors explore through three different lenses how “robot-proof” qualities like imagination, creativity, and artistic expression can be embedded at all levels in the higher education enterprise to foster holistic and transformative learning experiences. In our Feature article, Carol-lynn Swol explores how a “creativity-infused pedagogy” can cultivate students’ engagement with the public good; in our Campus Highlight, BTtoP grantees Sarah L. Hoiland and Tere Martínez describe how they used approaches from theater and improv to encourage student agency and civic engagement; and in his inaugural Director’s Column, David Scobey sheds a light on both BTtoP’s history and his own—and how we might learn from innovative and imaginative partners, both within higher education and beyond, to develop a community of creative collaboration.
