NEED FOR MORE CREATIV­ITY IN ED­U­CA­TIONAL IN­STI­TUTES

Fiji Sun - - Nation -

A knowl­edge-based so­ci­ety calls for creativ­ity to pro­duce new knowl­edge and in­no­va­tion in the form of eco­nomic and so­cial cap­i­tal says the vice chan­cel­lor of Univer­sity of Fiji, Pro­fes­sor Prem Misir. Pro­fes­sor Misir em­pha­sised this and more on the need for creativ­ity in ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tutes and be­tween teach­ers and stu­dents dur­ing the UniFiji Cre­ative Cir­cle at the Univer­sity on Fri­day.

“To pur­sue the na­tional vi­sion of a knowl­edge based so­ci­ety in Fiji we will have to have new in­no­va­tive and cre­ative teach­ers who use creativ­ity to pro­duce in­no­va­tion,” he said. He said teach­ers have to be able to help stu­dents de­velop their ca­pac­ity to learn on their own.
