Provocations for Innovation: Are We Ready to Educate Creative Makers and Shapers?

Date Thursday, Dec 7  Time   –    Room Tegel

To support strong civil societies and the development of a future-ready, changeable and creative workforce our education systems require an urgent rethink and reimagining. As we move rapidly towards the second half of the 21st Century creative, collaborative and ‘transversal’ themes need to be introduced to our education systems. Innovations in teaching and learning, supporting the development of new thinking - and additions to the current set of higher-order skills will form the new ‘essential skills’. Conservative interest groups in government, administration, trade unions and commercial organisations continue to put up obstacles to change that has been in discussion since the early 1990’s.
Within this setting it is essential and urgent to prepare creative 'makers and shapers' who will thrive in a rapidly changing and highly creative environment. This presentation will bring together a panel of experts to instigate a thought-provoking discussion and drive breakthrough thinking.
