    In Creativity
    Crisis
    Robert Nelson argues that university education is systematically
    uncreative and suggests how this might be changed. Constructive alignment, the
    centrepiece of today’s university pedagogy, promotes mechanistic thinking and
    the anxious gathering of manipulative skills. Learning happens more effectively
    when students take their study in new directions derived from their intimate,
    imagined relations with the new material they are encountering. Richly steeped
    in the history of ideas, from ancient Greece to the present, this book
    radically revises the concept of student-centredness, explores the language
    that encourages creativity, and helps teachers cultivate imaginative
    enthusiasm. Creativity Crisis is essential reading for those concerned
    with the nature and quality of instruction at university level.


    ‘This
    book is one of a kind. Robert’s purpose is to arrive at a creative new vision,
    where education is less constrained, less instrumentalist, more encouraging and
    open to the imagination.’ - Professor David Boud, Director, Centre For Research In Assessment And
    Digital Learning, Deakin University, Melbourne.
