Building on from the European Year of Creativity and Innovation , NUI Galway is making preparations for the 2010 Galway Symposium on Higher Education. The theme for the even is "Creativity, Imagination and Innovation in HE" and it will be held on our Galway campus on June 10th and 11th 2010. More information about the event including keynotes, workshops etc, will be posted in the early new year, but you might like to pencil in the dates anyway!
However, this isn't just advertising (after all we hate the fact that our dates clash with the NMC summer conference!!!!), what we're also interested in doing is trying to capture examples of really creative initiatives in higher education settings whether these are innovative new curricular designs/programmes or approaches to teaching and learning which really promote more active, engaged learning and nurture students' creative skills.
