ASCUS at Innovative Learning Week 2016

Innovative Learning Week is a festival which inspires, supports, and celebrates creative learning at Edinburgh University. We are proud to partner with ILW 2016 running a programme of events and workshops daily in the ASCUS Lab. We welcome you to come along to ASCUS Lab from 15th – 19th of February to celebrate creative learning with us. Check out our programme below and book now so that you don’t miss out!

About Innovative Learning Week 2016

This year ILW will have one core theme: Ideas in Play. Innovative Learning Week is a festival that encourages visitors to explore their learning experience in a new way via collaborative events and activities. It promotes openness, collaboration, creativity and believes that the innovation is a process and is more valuable that the finished product. One of the aims of ILW is to build communities around ideas and so many of the events and activities are open to all staff, students, alumni as well as local Edinburgh residents; a true festival of learning and collaboration.
