This one day symposium brings together international experts working at the intersection between creativity, learning, and technology who will share their knowledge regarding recent developments in this exciting area of research.

The full program can be found here.


How are technologies used to enhance learning and creativity? Are there any limitations or side effects in this regard and how can we overcome them? Does the use of technology change our understanding of creativity and learning? More importantly, does it impact our practice in education, business, and society? Is virtual reality enabling or hindering creative expression? Are educational technologies really effective? Can we talk about the creativity of machines or, ultimately, about new forms of creativity and learning in the current technological era?


These questions and others will be discussed by an international, multidisciplinary group of keynote speakers during an interactive day that includes both presentations and round table discussions. Attending this symposium will give you an opportunity to learn about the state of the art in the area of creativity, learning, and technology and exchange ideas about its future and societal impact.  


This international symposium is organised in partnership by Webster University Geneva and the Centre for the Science of Learning and Technology (SLATE) at the University of Bergen. The nine keynote speakers represent leading research centers or teams working on creativity, learning, and technology in different countries across Europe: Switzerland, Norway, France, Italy, Poland, and Greece.
