What’s next – the Festival of Creative Learning
The Festival of Creative Learning (FCL) is a festival focusing on creative learning and innovation at The University of Edinburgh. This evolved from the 5 year run of Innovative Learning Week at the university.
This year (2016/17) the festival 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). The Festival is supported by the Institute for Academic Development (IAD).
It’s a great opportunity to gain great skills, meet people from across the University, and realise your ideas in a supported and low-risk environment.
