The Creative University Conference 2016 will be taking place from 18 to 19 August at Aalborg University, Denmark. The title of this conference is "Knowledge cultures, critical creative thinking and innovative learning processes"

The conference will address the development of knowledge economies, discourses of creativity and new conceptualizations of the university as place of education and research.

 

In the present discourses, learning is becoming a key concept and phenomenon concerning creativity and physical as well as psychological learning environments that facilitate movement in body and mind, individual and organisation, institution and society. The organisers of this conference want to address notions of creativity and learning and the idea and role of the university.

The organisers of the conference comprise different research groups working together – HERCH, FIU, CLIO in Aalborg, Global Studies in Waikato as well as the previous conference organisers from Philipps-University of Marburg, Germany, and Royal University of Bhutan, Thimphu, Bhutan.

The organisers invite contributions that investigate philosophical, cultural, social and pedagogical aspects of The Creative University, to extend the dialogues between playful, creative learning processes and the contemporary concerns in society and the wider world.
