The Scottish Learning Festival Curriculum for Excellence: Enhancing Experiences, Raising Standards

T

he Scottish Learning Festival (SLF) is the key education event in the Scottish education calendar. Attended by educationalists from across Scotland and the world, SLF 2010 has something for everyone involved in education. As Curriculum for Excellence reaches full adoption, practitioners will be considering how they can develop innovative and relevant experiences for learners through planned activities which will lead to sustained, motivating learning and high levels of achievement for all. Individual practitioners and educational establishments will have opportunities to further develop their skills, knowledge and creativity, to help identify their own priorities, capitalise on Glow and develop solutions relevant to their own circumstances. SLF 2010 will showcase successful, innovative approaches to learning and teaching, and will bring together examples of educational practice, leadership and management strategies from across Scotland and beyond.

Welcome to the Scottish Learning Festival 2010 As Curriculum for Excellence reaches full adoption, practitioners will be considering how they can develop innovative and relevant experiences for learners through planned activities which will lead to sustained, motivating learning and high levels of achievement for all. To achieve this, individual practitioners and educational establishments need support to develop their skills, knowledge and creativity further, to identify their own priorities and to capitalise on the opportunities offered by Glow, as it develops. At the Scottish Learning Festival you will be joined by over 7000 teachers, headteachers, young people and education specialists from across Scotland, the UK and the rest of the world. You will have the opportunity to share what you do, hear about creativity already taking place in classrooms and learn about global innovation in education. I am sure that you will come away inspired, energised and ready to put some new ideas into practice and therefore I look forward to joining you at my first Scottish Learning Festival.

Wednesday 22 September – 17:45 Creativity as Catalyst: Manifesting the Potential of Curriculum for Excellence Eric Booth, Leading Arts and Creative Learning Consultant Scottish education can be the envy of the world, if the challenge of ‘creativity across the curriculum’ is embraced as the catalyst. This is the moment, and this is the opportunity of a lifetime for Scottish students and educators. Eric will detail some of the research and realities of bringing creativity into the habits of mind and daily practices of students and teachers, as well as into the atmosphere of a school and the evaluation practices of a school system.

Eric Booth is a leading expressive arts and education consultant from the USA. Formerly the Director of the Teacher Center of the Leonard Bernstein Center, he is a frequent keynote speaker on the arts and arts education to groups of all kinds.
