Journal of Educational Issues, v2 n1 p305-330 2016
This study aims at identifying the reality of stimulating educational environment for creativity at the Najran University (NU), and the importance of the availability of certain influencing factors, which in turn contribute to the provision of innovative and creative projects. Reviewing the literature and related studies, the importance of the availability of those factors in the university educational environment were explored and organized into two main categories. The first category: Practices and roles played by the university administration in the development of students to provide creative and innovative projects (6 elements). The second category: Practices and roles played by the teaching staff members in the development of students to provide creative and innovative projects (3 elements). A questionnaire consisting of twenty items was designed and distributed to a sample of university teaching staff members. The results clarified that such practices and roles were in the moderate level of sample agreement in general, with a decrease in the levels of some elements and slightly higher in others. The results also showed that there were no statistically significant differences due to sex and specialization variables. The study recommended the need to address the shortcomings of each of the following elements. Providing learning resource centers at the university, supporting extracurricular activities "Students Club", establishing incubators supporting creative projects, providing scientific research centers, establishing scientific and research partnerships, motivation and encouragement, teaching methods, scientific research, and self-learning skills.
