#SAProArt Creativity, Art, & Innovation: Lessons for Advising Presentation
Interested in learning more about the connections between Creativity, Art, & Innovation: Lessons for Academic Advising or Student Affairs, please let us know.
On October 1st, 2018, several founding members of the #SAProArt Community gathered to share lessons from their own creative endeavors at NACADA's annual conference in Phoenix, AZ. We were very pleased at how well our message resounded among the audience, many of whom left inspired stating that "I never thought of myself as creative before" . There are many ways to be creative personally & professionally and we encourage you to never stop thinking of yourself that way.
ABSTRACT: Advisors encourage students to explore liberal arts courses to expand their knowledge, but how often do we consider such perspectives in our own professional lives? This session explores connections among creativity, art, innovation and advising. How do we allow ourselves to be creative and artistic in the workplace? Creativity can enhance critical thinking, problem solving, and engagement with students in new and meaningful ways. Art offers advisors tools for professional self-care, mindfulness, and connecting with students and colleagues. Innovation is the application of creativity to professional practice in ways that think outside of the box. Join advisors from across the country for an interactive discussion of how creativity, art, and innovation can shape and encourage advisors to engage in practices that benefit our students, institutions, and profession.
