This online event offered insightful conversations with three creativities in education experts including those with academic and practice-based experience. The conversations focused on how these experts understand learning and teaching of and for creativity. They also bring in their experience of how conceptualisations of creativity and how they are recognised influence this, and what this in turn means for assessment and policy.
The event renews focus on the dialogues between and diversity of academic and practitioner-based research to consider how these benefit learners progress in relation to creativities. The key topics are shared publicly with event participants in advance in order to enable the most productive debates to occur in breakout room sessions after the conversations. With an eye to equality of contribution, these also inform how organisers, contributors and participants can take responses to these questions forward in blogs and sharings after the event.
We are delighted to be collaborating on this event with the International Society for the Study of Creativity and Innovation (https://issci.online/) and the Global Institute of Creative Thinking (https://www.gioct.org/) enabling us to reach international scholars and practitioners in the field.
