Symposium Teaching for Creativity

Creativity is currently viewed as one of the most important “skills” for all students to develop. The teaching of creativity is central to the Research Program of Radboud Teachers Academy.

On 10 November 2017, the Radboud Teachers Academy hosted an international symposium on ‘Teaching for Creativity’ in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. The purpose was to connect, share and learn about creativity teaching with peers across disciplines.

The central question was: How can students’ creativity be cultivated in (secondary) education?
