What we heard: “If we expect our students to be creative, solve problems, and design their way out of our biggest problems, we as educators must be willing to go there too. We need to experience the process to know which bits are sticky, where we might run into problems, and how we can support our students in developing their own creativity.” - Erin Quinn, Learning Coach, Calgary Canada
