Event details

Creativity in 21st Century Education: Where, how and what next?


Contextualised by the Durham Commission in 2019, and the pedagogic challenges generated during 2020, creativity is re-emerging as an educational imperative which is of interest again nationally and internationally. This webinar will contextualise discussions within recent publications and events to consider the what, where and how of 21st Century creativity in education, and to look forward with delegates to future possibilities for practice and research.

The event will be informed by a pre-meeting of invited creativity in education experts whose perspectives will be sought on historic, alternative and C-19 related creativity issues.

The outcomes of this pre-meet will be shared digitally with webinar participants in order to offer foundations for debate. They will also be brought into dialogue with the perspectives of the key contributing national and international creativity in education experts: Professor Teresa Cremin (Open University), Sarah Bracken (Headteacher, Finham Primary School, Coventry) and Professor Bill Lucas (University of Winchester).

The webinar will culminate by looking forward: debating and imagining how creativity might valuably manifest in education/be researched in the future, working from both current practice and anticipations of possibilities.

The event will culminate with the annual Anna Craft Memorial Lecture to be given as a recorded lecture by Professor Howard Gardner of Harvard University. Professor Gardner will then join participants for a live Q and A.
