Teaching for Creativity
On 10 November 2017, the Radboud Teachers Academy will be hosting an international symposium on ‘Teaching for Creativity’ in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. The purpose is to connect, share and learn about creativity teaching with peers across disciplines.
We warmly invite you to participate.
The Radboud Teachers Academy is a university-based institute that educates academic prospective and in-service teachers for the senior grades of Dutch secondary education. The senior grades of secondary education prepare pupils for studies in higher vocational and academic education. At the core of the secondary curriculum is an increasing emphasis on the development of pupils’ higher order thinking skills, creativity, scientific attitude, research and problem solving skills; within and across disciplines. The Academy takes a corresponding broad and yet ambitious view on teaching and learning, in which both students and teachers develop and use their full potential with respect to these learning goals and develop their talents accordingly.
