International symposium, online event organised by the WCCI and the Centre for the Science of Learning and Technology (SLATE).
It has been three years since the Webster Center for Creativity and Innovation (WCCI), Webster University Geneva, and the Centre for the Science of Learning and Technology (SLATE), University of Bergen, held the first international symposium on ‘Creativity, learning and technology’.
Since then, the world has radically changed, and changed in ways that make a deeper understanding of the intersections between creativity, learning and technology more important than ever. It is not only the case that every year marks new advancements in the field of (educational) technologies - that both require and shape our capacity for creative learning - but the current pandemic has driven most teaching and learning online, with all the challenges and opportunities associated with such a move.
In this context, the virtual meeting ‘New frontiers in creativity, learning and technology research’ will bring together experts in all these areas, from different countries, who participated in the 2017 edition and who will share with us the newest developments in their work and a range of valuable insights into how we learn and create using old and current technologies. Their reflections are expected to shed new light on creative learning in online and offline spaces, as well as the numerous complexities COVID-19 presents us with as individuals and societies.
The event will celebrate two outcomes from the initial symposium: a special issue 'Creativity, Learning and Technology' published by Creativity Research Journal (volume 32, issue 1, 2020) and, based on it, a book from Routledge, ‘Creative Learning in Digital and Virtual Environments: Opportunities and Challenges of Technology-Enabled Learning and Creativity’ (2021).
The program to be announced soon.
This online event is open to everyone and free of charge, but we kindly ask that you register HERE.
