The Necessity of Creativity Development in Adult Learners for Lifelong Learning

Kuan Chen Tsai

Abstract


Attaining a creative achievement is not a one-shot affair; it is instead a life span trajectory. This necessity implies that creative action is a lifelong learning. The concept of creativity has been well documented in the literature. Research illustrated that creativity activities could enrich psychological states of adults, which in turn improves quality of life and well being. Therefore, it is hypothesized that, especially for adult educators, the conceptualization of creativity could serve as a useful adult pedagogy to promote lifelong learning in adults. Being equipped with creative thinking, adults could compensate for or accommodate the unavoidable age-related losses, which in turn explore their unfinished journeys with satisfaction.
