In 2021 PISA will test Creative Thinking for the first time. Increasingly countries across the world are making it a mandatory part of their national curricula. In England the Durham Commission is exploring the topic.

Author of the best-selling book, Teaching Creative Thinking: Developing learners who generate ideas and can think for themselves and co-chair of the new PISA test of Creative Thinking, Professor Bill Lucas will lead an interactive morning combining theory with practice and leaving participants with many practical strategies for embedding creativity in their own teaching.
