In general, the symposium was beneficial as we were able to get more info about the high and higher school systems in Finland. The class observation and talking to teachers, question & answer part, as well as talking to the school principal, teacher trainer are the parts I liked a lot. Besides, through this symposium we will be able to gain some contacts for future collaboration.
By Dr. Chinnasamy Ramakrishnan (Participant from India)
Council for Creative Education, Finland has organised a five day symposium to shower light on creative education. Being a participant of the symposium, it is my great pleasure and bound duty to place on record the sincere attempts made by the organisers of the symposium, affiliating institutions and other interest groups in bringing out very crucial factors to be looked into to make our education creative and purposeful. It really provided a platform to see, hear, witness, discuss, deliberate, exchange and share the experiences of experts from Finnish Education department, Tampere University, Educational institutions, member of parliament and more with few domain experts. The sessions were well organised, resource persons were chosen in such a way that the exact need of the symposium was met with and visits to educational institutions, library, university departments were much impressive and educative to us. Presentation sessions were also arranged in a very perfect manner so that the presenter and audience have adequate time for sharing the requisite information. To be in precise, I would like to make a simple comment: "Really a right step forward in making education creative in right spirit at right time"
