Developing Creativity in International Schools: Nurturing Students in Transition

Location: Halcyon London International School, London, England

London, 13-18 July 2014

Run by the Creativity and Transition Institute, this event is suitable for all teachers, administrators, curriculum coordinators, counsellors, admissions staff, trustees, board members, proprietors, and parent association volunteers working with international students.

Transition and international mobility are recognised as unique features of international schools. Recent research suggests that creativity, a 21st century skill for all individuals, also has particular relevance in the international school context. Drawing on the internationally-acclaimed creativity research of Kyung Hee Kim, research on the characteristics of internationally-mobile students (Third Culture Kids or TCKs), and theory and practice surrounding Transition Education, we will apply Dr Kim’s findings to enhance our work with international school students by developing an understanding of:

 * the characteristics of creative individuals

 * ways to nurture creativity in our international schools

 * international mobility and the transition experience

 * strategies and programmes to support students, parents, and colleagues in transition
