The symposium is generally for 4 or 5 days, out of which the first two days are dedicated to the Finnish education model and the last two days are reserved for the international paper presentations on creativity in education. So there is more scope for discussion on creative education. One can listen to various studies going on in different parts of the world about creativity.
