Description

Drawing on research and practices from across the world, including research published by the Mitchell Institute, this one-day Curriculum Masterclass will showcase the role of Capabilities in global education including why they matter, how they can be embedded in schools and ideas related to their assessment. 

Professor Bill Lucas is the Director of the Centre for Real-World Learning and Professor of Learning at the University of Winchester in the UK. Bill is an authority on creativity, pedagogy, parental engagement, and leadership. he travels extensively to present keynotes, most recently in Melbourne, Sydney, Philadelphia, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Melbourne, Auckland, Dubai, and London.

In addition to his work at the University of Winchester, Bill is an international adviser to the Mitchell Foundation in Melbourne, the chair of Eton’s research and innovation center and, with Philip Pullman, a patron of the Pegasus Theatre in Oxford. Bill has recently been appointed to be the co-chair of the new PISA 2021 test of Creative thinking which will be based on his acclaimed five-dimensional model for creativity. Bill is currently advising the Department of Education in Victoria on the implementation of the ACARA capabilities curriculum. 

Bill is a prolific writer and has authored more than forty books and many research reports. His latest books, written with Ellen Spencer, are Developing Tenacity: Teaching learners how to persevere in the face of difficulty and Teaching Creative Thinking: developing learners who have fresh ideas and think critically. His acclaimed book, Educating Ruby: what our children really need to learn, written with Guy Claxton, asks challenging questions about the future direction of education.
