Creativity is a fundamental 21st century skill. In this workshop, participants will explore how to cultivate their learners’ creativity through a variety of techniques based on the use of art, drama and visual media. For example, they will examine how to use a multimodal approach to the reading, transformation and production of texts. Participants will be invited to consider how learners’ multiliteracies can be harnessed to make language learning more engaging.
