The Enrichment Triad Model: nurturing creative‐productivity among college students

Pages 295-302 | Published online: 18 Jul 2008
 

Abstract

The Enrichment Triad Model (ETM), a model developed by Dr Joseph Renzulli, is a programme for infusing high‐end learning strategies into existing educational programmes to promote excellence, enhance self‐confidence, and nurture creativity in students. Such a progamme is well known among elementary and secondary teachers but still unexplored and unknown within higher education faculties. The ETM was developed in the early 1970s as an alternative to the available models for gifted education and, in the last decades, it has been transferred to the regular classroom as a model to develop all students’ creative productivity. The purpose of this paper is to present a way that ETM can infuse enriched experiences into higher education. This paper will present pedagogical and organisational foundations of ETM and a six‐step process to integrate the model into university courses.
