If you are interested in making a submission please let Mr. Sheehan and Mr. Ruff know ASAP.
The IB Peterson Academic Symposium 2015 will be an event aimed at provoking questions and stimulating new thinking. The 2015 Peterson Academic Symposium is entitled:
Making time for creativity: why does it matter?
We will explore the role of creativity in schools, further education, industry and beyond. We are inviting leaders in the field to join us. The first day is focused on a series of fast-paced, stimulating ten minute talks, short film submissions from schools on creativity, and a no-holds-barred debate. The second day is focused on thinking within the IB and the impact on the development of IB programmes. To continue the discussion after the symposium, the IB will share the filmed presentations at regional conferences and with participating schools.
We have two exciting opportunities for schools to participate.
