    Creativity in teaching and learning: What, why, how?

    Wednesday 24 June 2015, 1730 - 2030
    The British Council, 10 Spring Gardens, London, SW1A 2BN


    ‘Creativity extends right across all age-ranges, all levels of competence, all teaching contexts and all geographical regions. And it applies equally to teachers as well as learners. Creativity is a universal, though its manifestations may be specific and local.’ – Alan Maley

    Do teachers need to be creative? What stops us from being creative? How can we and our students become more creative?

    Join this highly practical, interactive seminar to discover small changes that can make a big difference to creativity in the classroom. Two speaker sessions will provide successful activities and real-life examples to inspire creative teaching and learning.
