Conference theme

This conference provides opportunities for learning and networking on various aspects of creativity and thinking in education. We would like to invite professionals working on the 21st century skills, leadership, entrepreneurship, problem-solving, metacognition, creativity and thinking and make a step towards establishing a common ground.

There are three main strands of the conference: thinking as a key competence in learning, thinking as a key competence in teaching and teacher education and thinking as a key competence in educational management.
