Creative Conversation: Can creativity be taught?
Thu 27 April 2017, 16:30 – 18:30 BST
Creative Conversation led by Joanna Mawdsley from Dundee V&A
V&A Dundee, Scotland's first Design Museum, will open in 2018 providing inspiring exhibitions, activities and resources for teachers and pupils. This session will share V&A Dundee’s experience of delivering our first Schools Design Challenge in Dundee and Angus. The challenge involved 18 schools, with over a thousand pupils taking part across all areas of the curriculum. It offered schools the chance to focus on and explore creative thinking and enabled teachers to experience a methodology designed to promote divergent thinking; which complements skills assimilation in the classroom. Join us for a practical session that explores ways to approach creative thinking with pupils across the curriculum.
