Welcome to Innovation and creative learning at The University of Edinburgh

Innovative Learning Week (ILW) was an annual festival which aimed to inspire, support, and celebrate creative learning at Edinburgh University through collaborative events and activities. The last ILW festival ran in February 2016 around the theme Ideas in Play. You can read about this successful festival here along with checking out the ILW 2016 Award Winners and the festival's impact. A huge thank you to the hard work of our School Coordinators, Event Organisers, and Champions of ILW over the course of year! As the festival has now ended its run, in order to secure and build on the legacy of ILW, a ‘Festival of Creative Learning’ will be launched, and it will be shaped over the summer of 2016.

The Festival of Creative Learning will differ from the Innovative Learning Week in the following ways:

The week between Teaching Blocks 3 and 4 will be used for a broader range of purposes in Academic Years 2016/17 and 2017/18, and  Schools will be encouraged to use the week in ways that are best suited to their staff and students. 

The Festival of Creative Learning will comprise a programme of events and activities running throughout the academic year, along with a curated, week-long programme of events in February (20th – 24th February 2017).
