1st INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON IMAGINATION
AND EDUCATION





Dear past and present Faculty Associates of Simon Fraser University:



Following an enthusiastic response for submissions from various members
of the educational community, the Imaginative Education Research
Group
(IERG) of Simon Fraser University is pleased to invite you
to
our first International Conference on Imagination and
Education
, which will be held July 16-19, 2003, in
Vancouver
(BC), Canada.


Our conference will explore various ways in which we can better
understand imaginative teaching and imaginative learning. It will bring
together educational practitioners and researchers from British Columbia,
Canada, and a number of other countries, in nearly 130 sessions that will
explore the relationship between imagination and education. These
sessions will explore various themes, including imaginative curriculum
design across the disciplines (such as mathematics, the natural sciences,
social sciences, teacher education, etc.); the place of imagination in
educational philosophy, research, and administration; imagination and the
arts (drama, visual arts, music, etc.); and imagination and language
(including ESL instruction, literacy, language arts and storytelling).
Our event will also feature a number of exciting featured presenters,
including:



Elliot W. Eisner,
(Keynote
Speaker)
Professor of Education and Art, Stanford
University

Kieran Egan, Simon Fraser University, Canada

Cedric Cullingford, University of Huddersfield, United
Kingdom

Maria do Ceu Roldao, Polytechnic Institute of Santarem,
