Students' Opinions of Instructional Strategies in a Graduate-Level Creativity Course
Knowlton, Dave S.; Sharp, David C.
International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v9 n2 Article 6 Jul 2015
This paper empirically examines a variety of instructional strategies as impetus for creative thinking and achievement in a graduate-level university course. This empiricism considers students' opinions about the strategies used and the resulting effect of the class more holistically. Results indicate that reading the textbook and writing bi-weekly reflection journals were the most valued strategies by students for elevating creative thinking. The course, as a whole, did have benefit in that students felt that it allowed them to transform themselves into more creative thinkers.
