“Innovation and Creativity”

I am pleased to note that this is the second issue of RJSH. Our first volume was launched at the beginning of 2014 with the theme ‘The World Turning East’. This second volume aptly focuses on the theme ‘Innovative Creativity’, referring to thinking or creating in different ways that result in new solutions.

The policy ‘RSU: University of Innovation’ is being carried through a five-year plan (2012-2016) at Rangsit University because innovation plays a vital role in education. Thus, we need an education system that promotes both innovation and creativity. Innovativeness is required in designing more creative instructional methods that combine theoretical and practical knowledge. Grades may not reflect the quality of learning but innovativeness in creating new methods of evaluating the quality of teaching and learning is one solution. How to master new technologies and tools for creating and facilitating educational opportunities is more challenging. Is it better for our students to be involved in innovative practices than merely participate in traditional learning through lectures? What can education institutions, organisations and government do to assist these educators, practitioners and students? These are questions to ponder in applying innovation and creativity to education.

Hence, the two words ‘innovation and creativity’ are highlighted in this volume. Contributions include the letter on innovation in education from Dr. Arthit Oruairat, President of Rangsit University, and a special article by Professor Anthony Glendinning, Department of Sociology at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK. In addition to these features, the article ‘Green Architecture Movement in AEC’ and articles on a variety of other topic types are included

To ensure the quality or our issues, our editorial team works tirelessly and will continue to survey provide a high level of service to readers and authors.
