On this week’s The Sci-Files, your hosts Chelsie and Danny interview Sam Evalt. What does creativity look like in practice? Sam’s dissertation study focused on creativity in practice through the use of resources. He conducted a comparative study between the education and culinary fields. Resources across the fields mean people such as mentors or colleagues, books, the internet, etc. Sam views the culinary field’s view of creativity as an entry point for education, and in particular teachers and education researchers. Since chefs use recipes as a resource to create or even recreate, and teachers use other teacher’s recipes, also known as lesson plans, to teach. So he wondered, what does creativity mean? How does creativity look in practice? And what is the role of a resource in shaping creativity?
