This book highlights how pressures such as quality assurance, peer review systems, demands for greater efficiency and increased research output are effectively discouraging innovation and creativity in higher education. It makes a bold case for the integration of creativity in higher education, drawing together contributors and research from around the world and explores valuable lessons learnt from those working in schools and professional organisations.
Offering a wealth of advice on how to foster creativity on an individual and an institutional level, this book encourages lecturers to engage with the ideas and practice involved in helping students to be creative in all areas of their study.

'What is encompassed in Developing creativity in higher education? Are we concerned with developing creativity in relevant teachers, students,processes, and/or curricula; with pedagogicpractice and/or theory; with institutional practice and/or public policy? The answer turns out to be "all of them and more" and all in little more than 200 pages. A daunting task, but this edited volume does all these topics justice to a remarkable extent.' - British Journal of Educational Technology Vol 38 No 2 2007
