This workshop has been organised by the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI) of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), together with Durham University.
The conference builds on ongoing CERI work to improve our understanding of how creativity skills can be visibly and tangibly articulated by teachers, students and policy makers, and learnt and assessed as part of the curriculum.
