Research Proposal / Assessment of Student Learning

Abstract

Today's workplace dominance of creative collaborative environments highlights the importance of understanding whether students in project based learning environments are more likely to gain in creative flexibility when working in student teams compared to when working alone. Furthermore, does a specific team size enhance creativity by encouraging students to generate a wider variety of ideas? Other than creativity, are life skills such as communication, time management, and critical analysis, enhanced by working in student teams compared to working alone? This research explores creativity in student teams versus students working alone in interior design, fashion merchandising and environmental tourism.
