Keynote Speaker Ron Beghetto

Keynote Speaker

Ronald Beghetto, PhD
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.

Join us in exploring ways to help young people (and yourself) respond creatively to the uncertainty faced in learning and in life, as keynote speaker, Dr. Ronald Beghetto presents, “Uncertainty as a Catalyst for Creativity.”

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 Assiciation. 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 Cowin Press.
