Teaching and Learning Outside the Box

We are pleased to announce publication of Teaching and Learning Outside the Box: Inspiring imagination across the curriculum. This book originated in an early meeting of the IERG, during which someone recommended that we should compose a volume that would give an account of our ideas about imagination and its role in education.
Drs. Maureen Stout and Keiichi Takaya were our post-doctoral fellows at the time, and they took on the always difficult job of editing the book. Kieran Egan was later dragged in to help too. The book has essays by: Kieran Egan, Keiichi Takaya, Maureen Stout, Peter Liljedahl, Geoff Madoc-Jones, Sean Blenkinsop, Sharon Bailin, Andrew Schofield, and Mark Fettes.

The publisher’s blurb:
Everyone knows that educational success is much more likely when students' imaginations and emotions are caught up in learning. While we have a rich educational literature about holding students' interest, we do not have very much sustained work on what the imagination is, how it works in learning, or how it may be inspired in the classroom. Addressing the whole curriculum, this book provides insights into each of those areas central to educational success. Knowledgeable authors describe innovative teaching methods based on these insights, which offer new ways of planning and teaching.
