      Abstract

      This paper presents the findings and developments to date of a TQEF (Teaching Quality
      Enhancement Fund) project on Creativity and Innovation in Teaching in Higher Education. The
      purpose of this project is to develop and promote creative and innovative teaching across the
      University.
      Findings from the project suggest that academic staff want to share their creative and innovative
      teaching with colleagues from all disciplines, and that, presently, little is known about creativity
      elsewhere in the University. Creativity Cafés have been organised to give academic staff an
      opportunity to work together informally, to share best practice and germinate ‘Communities of
      Practice’ (Wenger, 1998) around four broad areas of creativity that have been identified.
      The positive feedback from these events has been overwhelming and the sharing of good
      practice has engaged staff with different perspectives of creativity across the curriculum.
