Outcomes of Creativity Programs
Gifted Child Quarterly
How much confidence, based on recent research evidence, can educators have in using creativity training programs in their classrooms? In general, little research has been done since the significant reviews conducted 5 years ago, and much of the research is inaccessible to teachers. Research continues to focus primarily on using strategies in classrooms. Some research is beginning to look at aspects of the creative person, product, and environment, but more could be done to look at the interactions among these. The continued emphasis on classroom strategies raises concerns about the failure by researchers to address issues of strategy transfer to other environments.
