    The topic of ICAS Fall 2021 Conference is "Convergence, Creativities & Design in STEAM Education". This season’s conference welcomes discussions that investigate to explicate the nature of creative practices in educational design across disciplines.

    An oft-cited quote from Steve Jobs in a Wired interview from 1996 states,

    “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they've had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people. Unfortunately, that's too rare a commodity. A lot of people in our industry haven't had very diverse experiences. So they don't have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.”

    Wolf, G. (1996). Steve Jobs: The next insanely great thing. Wired Magazine, 4, 67-76.

    A powerful statement like this can urge us towards a rethinking of the creative process in the context of education as well. Both STEAM integration and Convergent approaches in education can contribute to connected thinking and enhance the flow of creativities across subject-matter silos.

    In response to this, transdisciplinary education is receiving increasing attention. Educational design research is a methodology in which the iterative development of solutions to practical and complex problems of education provides the setting for scientific inquiry which can yield new knowledge (Spector, J. Michael, M. David Merrill, Jan Elen, M. J. Bishop, Eds, Handbook of Research on Educational Communications Technology, Springer, 2013, pp.131-140). Along these lines, ICAS Fall 2021 will explore educational designs that enable creative thinking that fosters and intensifies collaboration between disciplines.

    Topics for this conference include

    • Design studies in STEAM education

    • Examples of the creative process from the field of STEAM education

    • STEAM educational design from the technology perspective

    • STEAM curriculum design research

    • Assessing STEAM education design and creative process

    • Quality criteria for measuring creativity in the context of STEAM education

    • Large-scale impact of STEAM education for creative thinkings

    • And more...
