Educating the Creative Mind

In this panel presentation, Interdisciplinary Arts for Children students present insights and reflections from their attendance at March's Educating the Creative Mind Conference at Kean University in Union, NJ. The three-day Conference gave students the opportunity to both listen to and generate their own conversations about ways to strengthen arts-based education for young children by discussing theories, research and best practices with policy makers, teachers, parents and social workers – all those who influence children’s lives. Students will discuss key points by keynote speaker Howard Gardner, as well as reactions to multiple sessions by national and international presenters.
