Professor Bill Lucas and Dame Alison Peacock hold free creative teaching webinar

A free webinar is being held on 3 November for schools and teachers, educators and cultural sector organisations, introducing the five Creative Habits of Mind and how these can be embedded across the curriculum.

The event is presented by Professor Bill Lucas from the Centre for Real World Learning at the University of Winchester and Dame Alison Peacock of the Chartered College of Teaching, and is connected to A New Directions’ recent Teaching for Creativity resources.

The two will discuss how the concept of the five creative habits of mind was developed: Imaginative, Inquisitive, Persistent, Collaborative and Disciplined. They will show how these habits fit or clash with existing teaching practice and how they can be used in a classroom to evolve teaching and learning for reflection and development.

A New Direction is a London-based non-profit organisation dedicated to developing the creative potential of children and young people.

Its vision statement says, ‘Inequality is not set in stone; we can make London into a city with equal opportunities to engage with culture and be creative for all young people and children. This is our vision.

‘We are working towards a society where all children and young people can thrive through developing their creativity.’

The webinar takes place at 16.30 on Wednesday, 3 November 2021.
