    Overview

    In addition to his work at the University of Winchester, Bill is an international adviser to the Mitchell Foundation in Melbourne. He is also 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.


    Creative Thinking - what it is, why it matters and how to teach it

     

    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.
