How do we cultivate young people who are imaginative, inquisitive, innovative, and intrinsically motivated? In his inspirational book, Creating Innovators, education expert Tony Wagner explores practices that nurture passion, play, and purpose in the society-shapers of tomorrow. Creating innovators doesn't take an immediate overhaul of the school system. Wagner offers small, practical steps readers can take to shape cultures of innovation. This course will help you reimagine what's possible for young people, whether they are your own children, students at your school, or employees in your organization. This course may be completed with or without students.

As a beginning mathematics teacher at an urban high school, I quickly realized that drawing on student interests and experiences was essential to engaged learning. This insight has guided my work in education as a K-12 instructional coach, a developer of mathematics curriculum, and an instructor of professional development. My courses aim to create space for teachers to gather around relevant ideas and practical experiences as they deepen their knowledge and professional practice. Course topics reflect the concerns and curiosities of practicing teachers, equipping them to directly apply learning to classroom teaching. I value the diverse perspectives that Fresno Pacific University students bring to the learning community, and I hope that participants in my courses will be as inspired as I have been by the ideas and dialogue generated here.
