Creative activity and its impact on student learning - issues of implementation

(Abstract) The use of filmmaking as a creative learning tool within the academic curriculum has been pioneered at the University of Sheffield. Filmmaking has been found to promote a lively, exciting and challenging environment in the classroom. It produces highly motivated students and makes learning fun by giving them a sense of empowerment and achievement. Perhaps more importantly, it allows students to tap into their creativity and imagination - abilities identified by many as the passport to a successful future. This paper covers a number of examples which describe the benefits to student learning; these include close engagement with their subject leading to insight and deeper understanding, as well as a range of transferable skills. This successful practice is looked at in relation to issues of assessment, evaluation and cost. Using a methodological approach that employs qualitative feedback interviews with students as research data, as well as referring to the literature, it presents a case for sustainable implementation.
