Why run a Festival of Creative Learning event?

The Festival of Creative Learning will be accepting applications for the 2018 Festival week in October 2017, and we are also open to proposals for Festival of Creative Learning Pop-up events throughout the year. 

Benefits of organising Festival events and Pop-ups include:

Sharing a passion:

  • Exposure for the innovative work you or your department or society are already doing.
  • Create an event or series that showcases your interests.

Working with others:

  • Meet and build relationships with other Schools, departments, students, staff, and the local community.
  • Develop collaborative working methods and team skills.
  • Meet like-minded people interested in innovation, creative learning and designing learning experiences.

Learning new skills:

  • Discover new ways to learn.
  • Gain skills in other disciplines, event management and leadership.
  • Learn more about how the University works behind the scenes and how to navigate its systems.
  • Take an idea from design to delivery. 
  • Acquire competency-based experience for your CV.

Shaping the future of learning:

  • Pilot an idea, course or workshop in a supportive and low-risk environment.
  • Gather research from event attendees.
  • Make a real change to the UoE community.
  • Explore public engagement.

Helping others shine:

  • Give students and staff opportunities to grow and showcase their potential.
