Bill Lucas

Professor Bill Lucas is Director of the Centre for Real-World Learning at the University of Winchester.

With Guy Claxton he created the Expansive Education Network: an organisation of schools that share a common view of the goals of education, as outlined in their seminal book, Educating Ruby. Bill is in demand across the world as a researcher, speaker and facilitator. Bill’s work on developing capabilities is widely used in Australia and across the UK. The model of creativity on which Teaching Creative Thinking is based is the subject of a 14 country study by the OECD.
