Abstract:The purpose of this study was to assess ways by which creativity may be enhanced in a design-oriented course. In order to demonstrate the validity of the approach, a statistically based study was employed. Additionally, the experiment was replicated in two design-oriented fields at the University of Kentucky. These fields were civil engineering and interior design. The study revealed that creativity performance may be enhanced as a result of a special training module. This was shown to be valid in both civil engineering and interior design disciplines.
