As we move into the second year of our work at the Foundation for Education Development (FED) and following the launch of the FED National Education Consultation Report, we hosted a roundtable discussion seeking to answer the theme ‘What is creativity and why does it matter?’. The discussion centred on the Durham Commission on Creativity in Education.
We are delighted to be able to share the input from Professor Bill Lucas, Professor of Learning and Director of the Centre for Real-World Learning (CRL). Bill founded CRL in 2008, together with Professor Guy Claxton. With Guy Claxton, he is the creator of the Expansive Education Network. Bill is co-founder of Rethinking Assessment, a movement arguing for a major overhaul of the assessment system in England.
