Good teaching requires creativity, but how do we create a supportive environment for innovative teaching? We read an article that lays out how an “innovation commons” allows people to innovate, and we discuss how we could build an innovation commons in education.
Later, Youki Terada joins us for an extended Peer Review. Youki has published a round-up of educational research from 2018, and we compare notes on topics like the impact of classroom decoration (023) and complications in the mindset literature.
