The Heart of Creativity and the Bright Spark within us all: a Unified Model of Intelligence and Creativity for the 21st Century. This session will outline a Unified Model of Intelligence and Creativity, which includes multiple intelligences such as Physical Cognitive Emotional Intuitive and Divine intelligence as competencies in the process of learning and growth, Self-Realisation and Actualisation. The Model encompasses and describes the elusive light of illumination, the bright Spark within us all and aims to assist us in clearly understanding the process of Creativity and Innovation from concept to creation in order to enhance these qualities within.
“I had an Amazing time at the HEEG Innovation & Enterprise Event in London. Thank you to HEEG for the opportunity to Present and collaborate with other pioneering educators scientists researchers and industry professionals. It was a great opportunity to network and I am sure several positive collaborative initiatives will result. Visiting London is always a great Opportunity to enjoy the thriving and civilized culture, and a quick stop off in Millies Cookies and the Bagel Factory at Paddington always makes the journey home that much Sweeter”.
