    To prepare the young generation for the era of industry 4.0, a group of Asian researchers embark on the Interest‐Driven Creator (IDC) Initiative to co-construct a learning design theory that offers crucial design principles, with the support of technology, for 21st century educational reform. The IDC theory views learning as a process of creation driven by interest. As a design theory, IDC suggests how to nurture our young generation as lifelong creators by engaging them to create with interest habitually. In this panel, a group of non-IDC Initiative members will share their insights and critiques on the IDC theory with respect to their research experiences, thus eliciting a dialogue among the ICCE participants on how to nurture lifelong IDC. We hope this panel will help inform the community on how to transform the teacher‐centered knowledge acquisition approaches into an interest ‐ driven creation practice.
