A decade into the 21st century, educational leaders at Sheridan College in Ontario, Canada saw the writing on the wall. Technology was eating up routine jobs. The traditional curriculum couldn’t guarantee work. They knew that to make students employable, they would need to teach creative thinking and creative problem solving skills. So they embraced a radical, new academic strategic plan to put creativity at the heart of the institution’s mission, marketing and curriculum. The goal was to create what Sheridan calls “the Creative Campus”—a place where “creativity is what makes us different.” Over the last three years, Sheridan has delivered on its promise to “put legs under creativity.” As a reporter in the Toronto Star wrote, the college has elevated creativity “to a calling; an actual creativity brand believed to be a first in North America.” Read the full article to find out how Sheridan transformed itself into the Creative Campus.
