UHP + Discover was a summer research project I worked on in 2016. Through the Honors Program, students applied for individual projects and were paired with professors in different fields to do research during the summer months. My project was working out of DAAP with Dr. Flavia Bastos and helping her with her research on creative teaching practices. Over the summer, I conducted interviews with people in K-12 education in person and over the phone. I then transcribed the interviews and analyzed them for themes to help guide the book Dr. Bastos is writing. This experience taught me a lot. Not only did I learn about important skills like interviewing and analyzing transcripts, I learned a lot about the topic I was working on. As a film student, I do not have much exposure to the education field, so it was interesting to learn about it from this perspective. I got to speak to people all over the country and hear about some truly remarkable experiences they have had in education. The creativity element was much more my area, but I had never addressed what it meant inside the classroom. After working on this project, I realize how much I could have benefitted from having a more creative learning experience when I was growing up. It is important that kids have outlets to express themselves, especially in school and throughout their education.
