'Creativity, expansive education and the new Ofsted framework: why Ofsted is an opportunity to rethink your curriculum and how you might go about it'

The new Ofsted framework takes a more expansive view of curriculum, inviting schools to think more about what they are offering pupils. Specifically it asks teachers to think about their intentions, how these will be implemented and how the impact of the curriculum will be measured.

In this session Bill Lucas will explore with headteachers and teachers their vision (intentions) for a school which puts creativty at its heart. He will suggest practical ways in which creativity and other important capabilities can be embedded in the curriculum (implementation). And, importantly, Bill will offer a range of ways in which all of this can be measured (impact) including a number of assessment for learning and action research techniques.

Bill Lucas is Director of the Centre for Real-World Learning and Professor of Learning at the University of Winchester. In addition to his work at the University of Winchester, Bill is an academic adviser on creativity to Arts Council England, the chair of Eton’s research and innovation centre, a patron of the Pegasus Theatre in Oxford and a member of the LEGO Foundation’s advisory board.

In 2017 Bill was appointed to be the co-chair of the new Programme For International Student Assessment (PISA) 2021 test of Creative thinking which will be based on his acclaimed five-dimensional model for creativity. He is also academic adviser to Arts Council England on the Durham Commission into Creativity in Education.

Bill is an authority on creativity, pedagogy, parental engagement, lifelong learning and educational leadership. A highly engaging and authoritative speaker, he travels extensively to present key notes, most recently in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Philadelphia, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Qatar, Auckland and Dubai.
