Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner speaks at Roedean

07/10/2009

By inviting Gardner onto campus, Roedean, which already has some of the best A level results in Sussex, is cementing its position as an intellectual heavy hitter. Gardner’s theory on multiple intelligences has set the agenda in the psychology and educational theory communities for twenty five years.

Commenting on the presence of such a noteworthy speaker, Frances King, Head said: ”Roedean was originally founded to prepare girls for entry to the University of Cambridge, so our raison d’être has always been academic achievement. Today Professor Gardner challenged us to look anew at the Roedean curriculum to ensure we are equipping our students with those skills they need for a fulfilling career and work/life balance.”
