Fostering Deep Learning and Creativity with Ken Bain, author of What the Best College Teachers Do


Students don't always intend to learn deeply or to live creative lives.  Even the "best students" often intend only to make the highest grade, which is not the same as wanting to understand the meaning, implication, applications, and possibilities of what we are learning, and it certainly falls short of striving to become more creative.  Intentions are important, but they are only half the story.  We also hope our students will achieve their most positive wishes. How can we foster deep intentions AND achievements and promote creativity in our students?  Some research will help us do so.

Dr. Ken Bain is a well-known expert on faculty development and author of What the Best College Teachers Do, a prize-winning book that is very popular with Kaneb Center reading groups. Originally a history professor, Bain served in teaching centers at several institutions before retiring in 2013 as Provost of the University of Georgia.
