CRET 2018

The 2018 International Workshop on

Creative Research for Education & Technology

Technically Sponsored by ICRP

Workshop Overview

The 2018 International Workshop on Creative Research for Education & Technology (CRET 2018) will be held in JeJu, in conjunction with PlatCon-18, during 29-31 January 2018. The concept of Creative Research (CR) is to provide many fresh and innovative ideas to see our daily research works from diverse perspectives. In CR, our research works can be pleasures and adventures, and this change of thinking can make us more enthusiastic and more focusing on our research works with great excitement.

Actually, the CRET 2018 is the next event, in a series of highly successful International Workshop on Creative Research for Education & Technology, previously held as CRET 2017 (Busan, Korea, Feb. 2017), CRET 2016 (Jeju, Korea, Feb. 2016), and CRET 2015 (Jeju, Korea, Jan. 2015). 

We are sure that Creative Research for Education & Technology will give a big and fresh change to the traditional education research works, and CRET 2018 will be a good forum to discuss current trends and future directions of Creative Research. We eventually hope that CRET 2018 will be a good starting point for spreading Creative Research about all science, social science, and liberal arts areas as well as IT-related areas.
