Introducing our speaker Alla Gubenko

Today we are happy to introduce Alla Gubenko whose talk has the title: “Intelligence VS Creativity: what makes us humans ?”

While the scores of IQ tests are increasing (Flynn effect), creativity scores have decreased in the past 20 years. What are the reasons for it? How can we stop this trend? What would happen if we continue ignoring creativity in our work, classrooms and daily lives? Spoiler: artificial intelligence would challenge us to the core.

Honored with the MA degree in Psychology from the University of Luxembourg and the Vygotsky Institute, Mrs Alla Gubenko is doing her PhD studies at the University of Luxembourg. Her primary research interest is the interplay between intelligence and creativity. Her dream is to develop creativity enhancement techniques to let children’s creative talents shine as bright as possible.
