Keynote Speaker

Ron Beghetto, Ph.D., Professor of Educational Psychology, University of Connecticut
Presenting "Uncertainty as a Catalyst for Creativity"

What if we viewed uncertainty as an opportunity for creative thought and action? We would see ourselves modeling an unshakeable sense of possibility thinking. We would hear a shift in our language, moving away from this is the way it is to how could or should it be different? In short, we would see ourselves, our students and our children taking beautiful risks. In this talk, Dr. Beghetto explores ways to help young people respond creatively to the uncertainty they face in learning and in life.

An internationally recognized expert on creative thought and action in educational settings, Dr. Ronald Beghetto is a Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Connecticut, Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Creative Behavior, and is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association. His work highlights how making slight changes to existing practices can result in new ways of thinking and acting. He has published six books and over 100 articles and chapters on topics related to creativity and education. His newest book, Big Wins, Small Steps: How to Lead For and With Creativity is published by Corwin Press. Learn more about Dr. Beghetto...
