Abstract

There are numerous approaches aimed to develop creative capacities have been proposed. These have been implemented in various fields including science, business, nursing, technology as well as engineering. This study used quantitative method of meta-analysis to synthesize the effect of several approaches to creativity, specifically in the field of technology and engineering across educational levels. Several databases such as EBSCOhost, ProQuest, Taylor & Francis, SpringerLink, IEEE Electronic Library, Eric and Google Scholar were searched for articles that study the effectiveness of approach to creativity or related issues ranging from 2000-2012 timeframe. Based on 16 articles adopted, it was found that the grand mean effect size for creativity approaches is 1.02 with standard deviation of 0.72. This study also identified seven approaches and twelve different instruments used to enhance and measure creativity in term of product and individual creativity. The finding showed that the implemented creativity approaches have a positive effect on students creativity development. As such, it is recommended that further empirical research on the effect of creativity approaches need to be conducted specifically in technology and engineering to support these findings.
