An Investigation into the Factors Affecting Student Creativity in Higher Education in Thailand
The main purpose of this study is to investigate factors affecting learner
creativity in higher education in Thailand. The paper examines some of the issues with
educational policy since the introduction of the pivotal National Education Act Thailand
1999, which emphasized the need for learners to develop their creative abilities in
order to succeed in an ever-changing global environment. Final-year undergraduate
students at four universities in Thailand were surveyed by means of a Likert questionnaire
and results were examined through SPSS analysis (Statistical Package for the
Social Sciences) using Dunnett’s T3 test for correlational factors. Results from this
exploratory study indicate that, while students are, in general terms, positive about
the opportunities for creativity, the Thai government needs to do more to encourage
creativity in education.The paper concludes with specific recommendations for policy
makers and classroom practice.
