This paper offers analysis and evaluation of ‘Creative Science Teaching (CST) Labs III’, a unique and immersive approach to science teachers’ continuing professional development (CPD) designed and run by a London-based organisation, Performing Arts Labs (PAL), involving specialists from the arts, science and technology as integral. Articulating the key features of the experience and its perceived influences and by setting these in the wider context of the literatures in continuing professional development and creative teaching and learning, the paper seeks to demonstrate novel dimensions that this initiative has to offer CPD in creative teaching and the ensuing learning, highlighting key questions for further developing these new dimensions.
