What was Innovative Learning Week?

Innovative Learning Week (ILW) was an annual festival which aimed to inspire, support, and celebrate creative learning at the University of Edinburgh through collaborative events and activities. The last ILW festival ran in February 2016 around the theme Ideas in Play.

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.
