Recognising the value of creativity for young people’s lives and well being, the governmental programme Creative Ireland and its Creative Youth Programme have championed the importance of taking a whole-system approach to embedding creativity in education.
In the first of a series looking at how countries have moved from idea to implementation when fostering and assessing creativity and critical thinking, this OECD webinar seeks to explore and draw lessons from the Irish experience.
Join us for a conversation moderated by Stéphan Vincent-Lancrin, Senior Analyst and Deputy Head of Division in the OECD Directorate for Education and Skills, with:
Tania Banotti, Director of the Creative Ireland Programme
Tomás Ó Ruairc, Director of the Teaching Council, the professionals standard body for teaching in Ireland
Gary Ó Donnchadha, Deputy Chief Inspector, Department of Education, Ireland
Di Fisher-Naylor, Director of Creativity, Culture and Education (CCE), an international foundation that leads creative learning programmes in schools
Taking place in the lead-up to Ireland’s national creative youth conference, this conversation will provide insight into the value of an whole-of-government approach to creativity in education.
