We all agree, creativity must be a core skill in higher education, and it must also take part in the learning process. However, when we talk about creativity we don’t think about a clear concept, because we have a preconceived idea.

Our goal is to reflect on what it means to talk about creativity, delving into the different definitions that we manage and considering its evolution over time.

We know that creativity must be present when we faced with great challenges, so that our present demands us to learn to manage their parameters and which we incorporate in higher education. In this way, we can bet on a future where there will be people who can face the complex challenges that are currently emerging.

We consider it essential to deepen the concept of creativity, their roots and their trends, to better understand its complexity and interest for the moment we live.
creativity, concept, skill, learning process.
