LbD Conference 2012 – Creativity in Higher Education
8-11 May 2012, Laurea’s Leppävaara unit, Espoo, Finland
A distinguishing feature of the contemporary society is that it appears to be in constant process of transformation that affects all areas of life. Thriving in such a complex change process calls for creativity and innovative thinking.
In order to meet the needs of the surrounding society and to educate competent innovators of the future, higher education institutions need to give creativity their full attention. The challenges caused by the rapidly changing society will not be solved by traditional means. The world needs creative and forward-looking individuals who can produce creative solutions for the challenges of the working life and industries.
Thus the 2012 Learning by Developing – New Ways to Learn Conference on Creativity in Higher Education invites and challenges everyone to present, develop, benchmark and discuss creativity in higher education by concentrating on four topical questions: how to learn creativity, how to teach creatively, creative management in a higher education institution and developing a creative region.
