1°)  Assistant professor Christian Byrge – “Train the educator event”

Associate Professor Christian Byrge achieved his PhD degree for his research on creativity. He has invented and published several books and toolkits on how to teach creative thinking skills. These have been taught to more than 100.000 professionals from USA, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. He has also played a leading role in the design of the world’s first digital gamified creativity training programs. Christian has been a leading educational designers for several creativity modules, courses and programs in both foundational, youth and higher education as well as in, executive and continuous education. This includes the co-development of a new bachelor program on Creativity & Business Innovation and a master level program on Creative Genius (probably the most ambitious creativity training program in the world). Christian regularly gives inspiring and energetic keynote speeches, teaches courses and does counseling on the enhancement of personal, team and organisational creativity. He typically presents subjects like how to teach creativity, how to perform deliberate practice of creativity, creativity training, assessment of creative potential as well as a variety of creative processes and techniques.
