Creative Journaling: Making notes to make sense of the world

Through the practice of recording and noting past and present experiences, students learn to develop a heightened sense of their surroundings, and increase their self-confidence in expressing their ideas and reactions. This freedom to react and to record enhances the classroom and makes for richer learning experiences for both staff and pupils.

With over 30 years of experience as an educator and illustrator, Professor Xavier Pick will discuss and demonstrate in this webinar, the creative practice of responding to personal and international events through the practice of keeping a diary. He will discuss how keeping a journal at home and in the classroom encourages students to think and process passing experiences kinaesthetically, and how the act of doodling and notation can be used positively to enhance the learning experience.
