讲座摘要

In this lecture I consider how teachers can develop their careers in ways that both enhance their own sense of well-being and contribute to improved learning outcomes. In doing so, I concentrate of the concepts of craft and creativity and the roles they play in language teaching. I begin by defining what I mean by these terms before going on to discuss their importance in both effective language teaching and long-term teacher well-being. Drawing on established concepts from educational psychology, I will show how teachers are driven simultaneously to improve their craft as classroom practitioners while engaging creatively with materials and learners. In doing so, I hope to emphasize creativity in language education as a process emerging from interaction between teachers, learners and language.
