Thinking Schools @Exeter

Thinking Schools @Exeter (TS@Exeter) represents the long-standing engagement with research on teaching for thinking and creativity at the School of Education (SoE) at the University of Exeter.  We offer schools in the UK and internationally a route to accreditation through the Exeter Thinking School Award or the Exeter Advanced Thinking School Award. TS@Exeter collaborates with practitioner networks around the world, including networks of teachers and schools. We also work with organisations such as Thinking Matters, who facilitate and manage training for a whole-school approach to develop Thinking Skills. TS@Exeter has a strong record of research in Thinking Skills, Metacognition, Creativity and Dialogue in Education, pioneered by Professor Bob Burden and building on the work of current members of staff at the School of Education.  We are closely affiliated with research centres and networks within the School of Education, in particular the Centre for Research in STEM Education, the THINK Network, and the Creativity and Emergent Educational-Futures Network.
