Creativity and Emergent Educational-futures Network

The Creativity and Emergent Educational-futures Network (CEEN) seeks to bring together individuals with overlapping and intersecting philosophical orientations, ideologies and values that challenge the status quo on education.

Despite our diversity, we all do work that argues for

  • the centrality of difference and emergence in our practices of thinking, being and doing.
  • the necessity of researching education beyond boundaries.

Creativity in 21st Century Education: Where, How and What Next?

Creativity is again re-emerging as an educational imperative which is of interest nationally and internationally. The CEEN/BERA Creativities SIG event has been postponed from June 2020 and is now due to happen in Spring 2021: Creativity in 21st Century Education: Where, how and what next?’ . We will look both back across early 21st Century practice and research and forward​ to reflect on new challenges.You may have noticed an item in the Summer 2020 edition of Research Intelligence with the same title; it explains plans and ideas for the event and current SIG focus. 

While we are working to re-organise the event, CEEN and BERA SIG colleagues would like to gather your views regarding what policy or /practice or /experiences or /research have helped your creativity in education practice and research to date ​and in light of current contexts. Please share your ideas either via twitter @CreativeEdBERA using 
#CreativitiesinC21Ed, or on padlet. Your views will help us refine the event. 

We look forward to your contributions!
