Creative teaching, like all forms of teaching, is a polymorphous act. It can take multiple forms and have different pedagogical aims. The purpose of this chapter is to describe creativity in the domain of teaching and clarify three forms of creative teaching: Teaching about creativity, teaching for creativity, and teaching with creativity. The chapter will describe each of these types of creative teaching, including their different aims, previous work on each type, and the knowledge base necessary for each type of creative teaching. Directions for future research will also be discussed.
