Universiti Sains Malaysia, in collaboration with Han Chiang College and Sunway University will be organizing National Conference on Creativity in Education and Humanities 2017 (NCC 2017) on 25-26 October 2017.
The theme ‘Empowering People’, will serve as a platform for multistakeholders to understand and promote the role of creativity in the development of education and humanities, which is considered as a source of creativity in society at large.
Aimed at both practitioners and scholars, NCC 2017 will explore the creative ecosystem in relation to both the formal and informal education and humanities contexts, and examine the notion of “ubiquitous creativity” as it relates to education and humanities.
Academics, scientists, researchers, school teachers, policymakers, students (schools and higher education institutions), government ministries / agencies, corporate groups, non-profit organisations (NPOs), industry groups, non-government organisations (NGOs) and anyone who is interested in creativity in education and humanities can participate in the conference.
The two day conference which will comprise various sessions for presenters (oral and poster) and forum presentations by invited speakers will take place at School of Humanities, Universiti Sains Malaysia.
