Vivid Ideas Creativity in Education

Innovation, entrepreneurship, and creativity are now words that dominate the education, business and political arenas, but how do we teach creativity and innovation in an environment dominated by strict curriculum guidelines that focus on ‘teaching for results’?
Our MC Fenella Kernebone has had a long career working across arts, film, music, design and culture. The keynote address by Professor James Arvanitakis, Dean Graduate Research School, Western Sydney University, will discuss the innovative and creativity imperative, and outline how educators can take advantage of curriculum guidelines to promote these graduate attributes, rather than be impeded by them.

The panel will provide insight into real-world needs for graduates and educators, present current innovative work and tackle the issue of how we can work with and change current practice to produce strong creative thinkers.
