We often put a lot of focus on our children being creative in and out of the classroom – encouraging creative play in the early years and nurturing creative approaches to learning so our pupils become independent and innovative learners as they progress throughout the school. While this is a fundamental part of what we do, as educators, to prepare our pupils for success in the classroom and beyond, what can we as educators do to ensure we are being as creative as possible? How can we be sure that our creativity in the classroom is having a transformative impact?
With this in mind, St. Paul’s is holding its 5th Education Conference next 28th and 29th March. This follows on from its hugely successful series that addresses continuous professional development opportunities for teachers to help them be better educators and to help them develop as individuals. Investing in our teachers is key to our continuous provision of a world-class education, and every two years we invite specialists from around the world to share their latest research and expertise in current and relevant topics.
In this 5th edition, centred on creative learning, we will have under one roof world-renowned educators who are leaders in their fields in bringing creativity to the classroom, and to our work as teaching professionals. We know that, in our diverse and engaging programme, they will challenge our thinking, help us to look at our own practice and consider ways to do things differently, and, we hope, leave us all inspired to do things better and in a more innovative way with our classes.
