The Qualification in Creative Thinking is here!
Learning by having fun has always been at the heart of the Daydream mission, but we want to do more than that. We want to give academic credit for completing our challenges. We set about creating two qualifications in Creative Thinking to validate the learning taking place and highlight its value to learners, educators and society. We know Creative Thinking is what our future workforce needs, and it was clear to us that there should be a qualification in it!
To create a qualification that genuinely enables creative thinking, we had to use our own problem solving, collaboration and creative skills. Our brave team of creatives, teachers and lecturers from Robert Gordon University, Glasgow School of Art, University of Edinburgh and the University of Dundee joined forces with Edinburgh College who wrote the qualification with us, then Edinburgh Napier University credit-rated it for the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework, ensuring it can be recognised for University entry.
Learning by having fun has always been at the heart of the Daydream mission, but we want to do more than that. We want to give academic credit for completing our challenges.
Underpinned by innovative learning, teaching and assessment methodology, this is a very different model, navigating the systems and structures of our education system to ensure that the learning intention isn’t compromised. We hope that our Creative Thinking qualifications will contribute to a revolution in education.
