Lectures on Intelligence, Creativity, and Leadership

In January 2017, Howard Gardner delivered a series of three lectures at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. These lectures revisited three topics that Gardner has studied over many years: intelligence, creativity, and leadership. Having written books about each of these threads (see his work on MI, Creating Minds, and Leading Minds), about half of each lecture was devoted to summarizing the work he has carried out over the decades. However, in the latter part of each lecture, he presented his recent ideas and thematic conclusions.  

HGSE has now posted via YouTube the latter half of each lecture, corresponding with the sections that contain new content. We are sharing these videos below.




For those who may be interested in learning more, or in reviews of Gardner’s earlier work, please peruse this website or visit our official MI site at multipleintelligencesoasis.org. You can also visit thegoodproject.org or view the various other lectures and interviews posted online.

    Good day Sir! I am from the Philippines and is currently trying to finish my thesis about correlation of Multiple Intelligences to the Academic Performance of my students in Grade 12 in a way to assess if the newly implemented curriculum K-12 in the Philippines is really effective in embracing your theory. Also, to help and eventually understand the behavior and modes of learning of today’s so-called millennials.
    In connection to this, I would like to ask for a suggestion which is the best Multiple Intelligence Test I can use? For now I am using the businessballs.com for self-calculating version, however there are only 7 intelligences being assessed in this instrument when there are already nine.
    My gratefulness to your reply.
