Welcome to TICON

Welcome to TICON (Teaching Creativity online for HE Engineering Teachers), the space for Higher Education Engineering teachers, who want to upskill in terms of digital teaching with appropriate pedagogical approaches, and overcome the barriers in engineering HE for teaching creativity online.

What can TICON do for you?

The TICON Curriculum provides insight into the barriers and challenges to using creativity methods in teaching online, in particular with regards to engineering and related creativity techniques, and the skills and competences required to overcome these barriers. Access to the e-learning platform where, with our training and learning materials you will be able to upskill and know how to use creativity methods in engineering education and teach creativity online (and with the appropriate pedagogical approaches and digital tools).

Get access to over 50 creativity methods in the TICON Creativity Toolbox. Here you can learn when to use which method, how to use them, and what you need to implement them.

Share your experience and knowledge of creativity methods in online teaching with other HE teachers. Ask questions, share your knowledge, and be part of the HE creativity community.

TICON

will provide HE Engineering teachers with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to use creativity methods and techniques to teach their course subject and related creativity topics, in online and hybrid contexts, aligning with the pedagogical objective of their course. They will learn how to ensure that student motivation, skills attainment and skills assessment is enhanced in the most adequate and efficient way.

It also will give HE Engineering teachers a deeper insight and understanding of creativity, and teaching creativity in online engineering contexts, which will enable the efficient adoption of relevant methods and techniques.
