On February 1, 2019 Dr. Gillian Judson hosted a webinar on Imaginative Education (IE) in the context of Museum Education. She briefly reviewed the nature of cognitive tools and introduced a project she completed for the Smithsonian SITES travelling exhibit on Romare Bearden’s A Black Odyssey. If you are interested in connecting with other museum educators and exploring Imaginative Education in the context of museums and other cultural contexts please use the contact form here.

Engage In Dialogue: Making Space for Imagination & Innovation In Educational Leadership
On January 15, 2019 representatives from CIRCE and CSELP offered a workshop for educational leaders in Langley, B.C., our partner district for an upcoming Masters of Education degree on Imaginative Leadership. Together with workshop facilitators, participating leaders discussed the role of imagination in their leadership, how they make space for and practice it within their professional lives, and how they might enhance this capacity.
This event was co-hosted by Simon Fraser University’s Centre For Imagination In Research, Culture & Education (CIRCE) and the Centre For Studies In Educational Leadership & Policy (CSELP).
