In early April 2016, Howard Gardner visited Spain, travelling to three different institutions in recognition of his contributions to education.
First, Gardner accepted the “Telefónica-Repsol Foundation-Down Syndrome Madrid Award for the Family and Handicaps” from the Universidad Pontificia Comillas in Madrid. An annual award in its third year of existence, the event also allowed Gardner to present a lecture on MI theory.
In the following days, Gardner headed to Barcelona, where he was presented with an honorary degree from the Universitat Ramon Llull and was also received at the Collegi Montserrat, a school that has implemented multiple intelligences theory as a core facet of its pedagogy.
We are pleased to share several resources and articles that resulted from this successful and interesting trip. Click on any of the links below to view the corresponding material.
