The power of creativity and play in education

An early evening provocation from Prof. Alison James, Prof. Bill Lucas and Prof. Paul Sowden designed to invite questions and new connections

An opportunity to explore the value of play and creativity in all aspects of education with three leading academics as part of the University of Winchester’s Play and Creativity Festival.

 

Activities will include:

 

What is creativity? How we are all creative. An appreciative inquiry activity exploring the many dimensions of creativity.

Why play matters when you go to university. A provocation.

A walk through the creative process. Take a short walk with us and find out how engagement with our environment can stimulate different aspects of the creative process.

A slow meet (an antidote to speed dating) A chance to connect and reflect.

Alison James is Professor of Learning & Teaching, National Teaching Fellow, Principal Fellow of the HEA and accredited LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitator. With Stephen Brookfield she is the author of Engaging Imagination: Helping Students Become Creative and Reflective Thinkers and, with Chrissi Nerantzi, she has recently edited The Power of Play: Creativity in Tertiary Learning.

Bill Lucas is Professor of Learning and Director of the Centre for Real-World Learning (CRL) at the University of Winchester. He founded CRL in 2008, together with Prof. Guy Claxton. In 2017 Bill was appointed by the OECD as co-chair of the strategic advisory group for the 2021 PISA test of Creative Thinking which will draw on the work of the CRL. Bill is an international adviser to the OECD/CERI research into critical and creative thinking in France. 

 

Paul Sowden is Professor of Psychology, Cognition and Creativity at the University of Winchester and Visiting Professor in the School of Psychology, University of Surrey. He is an Associate of the Institute of Business Creativity, Switzerland, a Chartered Psychologist and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
