Queensland Creative Summit 2018: Initial Teacher Education

Moreton Bay EEC were thrilled to have two of our teaching team invited to attend the Queensland Creative Summit 2018: Initial Teacher Education. Griffith University’s School of Education and Professional Studies hosted the summit, with the support of key stakeholders including the Queensland Council of Deans of Education and the Queensland College of Teachers.
Nationally and internationally, creativity is increasingly the focus of attention from governments, business leaders and educators and is a cornerstone of Moreton Bay Environmental Education Centre’s pedagogy. In a world context characterised by rapid change, the capacity to see things in new ways and to devise innovative approaches, processes and solutions is critically important.
The Summit discussed how initial teacher education programs best prepare the creative educators of tomorrow and considered:
·         Teaching creatively: using novel and inventive approaches to make learning more engaging, interesting and effective; and
·         Teaching for creativity: approaches designed to develop and enhance learners’ own creative thinking processes; and exploring strategies for equipping teachers with knowledge, skills and values required to contribute to creative futures for all young Australians.
Participants included school Leaders from all school systems and sectors in Queensland, Deans and Academics from higher education institutions, initial teacher education students and peak organisations across Creativity, Science and The Arts.
