Over the next two months the RSA will be participating in a number of international events sharing our research and thought leadership on a wide range of topics including Education and Creative Economy.
At the World Innovation Summit on Education (WISE) in Qatar earlier this week, Joe Hallgarten, Director of Creative Learning and Development, participated in the largest gathering of the global education community. Commissioned by WISE, the RSA partnered with the Innovation Unit to explore how school system leaders can create the conditions for system-wide innovation.
Joe will also contribute to a seminar entitled: Can better testing and data accelerate creativity in learning and societies at the Salzburg Global Seminar in Austria in December.
Later on this month, Tom Gilliford, Project Engagement Manager for Creative Learning and Development, will be conducting a workshop on how education systems can support innovation at the 12th Global Education Leaders’ Partnership in New Zealand.
