A Few Words From Kieran Egan

Here are some of the blogs I have been pleased to have published as part of Dr. Gillian Judson’s always engaging (apart from my examples) blog. Anyone interested in making their educational thinking and practice more imaginative and interesting to students and others would be well-advised to become a regular reader of imaginED. Join me in reading the blogs every week!


Kieran Egan has now retired from Simon Fraser University, though he continues as a Director of the Centre for Imagination in Research, Culture and Education, and as a cheerful promotor of the Learning in Depth program. His days are now largely spent writing poetry. Learn more about his poetry and prose here.
