Creativity has been gaining more and more attention in the last years in a world with an unprecedented level of change and uncertainty. There is an increasing demand for people to think and act creatively. However, our current educational system is not conducive to creativity. K-12 teachers usually do not get training in schools of education to teach for creativity, which means there is a need for additional creativity training. This project focuses on creating a framework for an online course about creativity in education for K-12 Brazilian teachers. An extensive literature review about the primary needs of teachers and some input from Brazilian teachers about their expectations and needs for an online course helped determine the course content. The course has eight modules. The course content is organized around some questions - why, what, who, where, when, and how (5W1H) about creativity in education. The course framework was designed based on online course best practices to promote engagement and interactions among participants.
