The creative moral education diploma

  1. 1. Moral Education: The Creative Educator Vishalache Balakrishnan, PhD Faculty of Education University of Malaya diploma moral
  2. 2. Introduction• Creativity is defined as the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Creativity involves two processes: thinking, then producing. Innovation is the production or implementation of an idea. If you have ideas, but dont act on them, you are imaginative but not creative (Naiman, 2010).• Creativity is the process of bringing something new into being...creativity requires passion and commitment. It brings to our awareness what was previously hidden and points to new life. The experience is one of heightened consciousness-ecstasy (May, 2010) diploma moral
  3. 3. Why creativity in Moral Educators?• Pink (2005) argues that left-brain linear, analytical computer-like thinking are being replaced by right- brain empathy, inventiveness, and understanding as skills most needed in daily business-like occupations.• Pink says "Logical and precise, left-brain thinking gave us the Information Age. Now comes the Conceptual Age - ruled by artistry, empathy, and emotion." What does this mean for future jobs including ME educators? diploma moral
  4. 4. Creativity is the Most Crucial Factor for World Class Moral Educators• According to the IBM 2010 Global CEO Study, which surveyed 1,500 Chief Executive Officers from 60 countries and 33 industries worldwide, CEOs believe that, "more than rigor, management discipline, integrity or even vision - successfully navigating an increasing complex world will require creativity."• CEOs say creativity helps them capitalise on complexity "The effects of rising complexity calls for CEOs and their teams to lead with bold creativity, connect with customers in imaginative ways and design their operations for speed and flexibility to position their organisations for twenty-first century success.“• What is the implication for ME educators? diploma moral
  5. 5. Characteristics of a creative Moral Educator• Facing a world becoming dramatically more complex, creativity is one of the most important leadership attribute that a ME educator needs to acquire. Creative ME educators invite disruptive innovation, encourage others to drop outdated approaches and take balanced risks. They are open-minded and inventive in expanding their management and communication styles, particularly to engage with a new generation of students, colleagues, administrators and society.• High-performing ME educators practice and encourage experimentation and innovation throughout their teaching. diploma moral
  6. 6. • Creative ME educators expect to make deeper teaching and learning model changes to realise their strategies. To succeed, they take more challenging methods, find new ideas and keep innovating in how they teach and communicate with their students.• The most successful ME educators co-create and are able to link their teachings with students real-life experiences and bring about the change that is necessary for students to transform into global citizens and locally wisdom moral individuals.• They are adopting new channels to engage and stay in tune with world class changes. By drawing more insight from the available data (past, present and future experiences, curriculum) successful ME educators make students’ achievement (moral thinking, moral feeling and moral action) their number one priority. diploma moral
  7. 7. Conclusion• If we are going to find solutions in a world that is becoming increasingly interconnected and complex, we cannot rely on traditional ways of teaching and learning.• However, never forgetting the phrase “Old is Gold”, ME educators should use their creativity to apply traditional ways to merge into technology and create a more suitable way to educate students morally. diploma moral
  8. 8. Creativity is fostered in organisational culturesthat value independent thinking, risk taking,and learning. They are tolerant of failure andthey value diversity. Open communication, ahigh degree of trust and respect betweenindividuals are crucial (Naiman, 2010). diploma moral
