Innovative Learning Week (ILW) is a festival which inspires, supports, and celebrates creative learning at Edinburgh University.
Unique to our University, the festival runs from 15-19 February and staff and students are invited to collaborate and explore their teaching and learning experience in a new way. 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.
Since it began five years ago, ILW has hosted over 1,000 events across the University from the student-led TEDx University of Edinburgh, the Smart Data Hack, a Maths’ Makers Fair, and numerous collaborations with the local community. Many of initiatives have used ILW as a place to play and experiment in order to scale up after the festival.
We are excited to open applications for this year’s programme around the theme Ideas in Play!
