In fall 2013, I took a class called CEP 818: Creativity in Teaching and Learning with Michigan State University. In this class, I focused on how fanworks can be used as a tool to promote creative and social development in people of all ages while using the seven tools of creativity. I took this class as a supplement for my MA in Youth Development to support my capstone topic of how technology in the form of fanworks can be used to promote positive youth development.
I’ve compiled all my blog posts written for CEP 818 below.
