Gillian Judson

I enjoy teaching, researching, writing in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University, and also co-directing the Imaginative Education Research Group ( As an educational consultant I explore a range of topics including imaginative and ecological teaching practices, educational program design, educational change, and Museum Education. My main interest is the role of imagination in all learning and how all educators can routinely engage and inspire their students by tapping into this great learning tool. I write books/chapters/articles/posts that focus on the imagination, Imaginative Education (IE), Imaginative Ecological Education (IEE), creativity, and wonder. My latest publication is a co-authored book entitled Imagination and the Engaged Learner: Cognitive Tools for the Classroom. (Egan, K. & Judson, G. New York: Teachers’ College Press; 2016).
