Nora Sutherland - Creative Writing
I presented my discovery of Creative Writing via the sciences at the Luncheon on Inspired Learning, part of Celebrate Academics 2014. I was surprised at how engaging the event was. It was heartening to see so many professors and administrators express concern and search for ways to make the classroom more personal, more involved, and more useful to students. Clearly, the people participating cared. Having witnessed these sort of academic discussions first-hand, I'd like to see some of the brainstormed changes implemented while I'm still attending UM. My favorite academic tool mentioned were visual blogs for art students to document their studio work.
