Types of Creativity and Visualization in Teams of Different Educational Specialization
Blazhenkova, Olesya; Kozhevnikov, Maria
Creativity Research Journal, v28 n2 p123-135 2016
This research is the first to examine different types of creativity dimensions in relation to different types of visualization on a team level, by comparing adolescences' teams of different specialization (visual artist, scientists, and humanities) during a complex creative task in an ecologically valid educational setting First, the difference between all teams' creative outputs (drawings) was compared in terms of their visual characteristics and represented content based on parameters derived from the content analysis of visual media. Second, the teams' creative performance was compared using evaluations of experts from different professional domains. Based on the evidence from examination of teams' creative products (final drawings) and their evaluations by professionals, this research suggests that object visualization is related to artistic creativity and spatial visualization is related to scientific creativity on the team-level. Furthermore, the findings provide a clear indication that assessing general creativity independently of the domain, as it has been done so far in most team creativity literature, might be somewhat limited.
