Afzal Sadat Hosseini

Abstract—This paper addresses creativity as an educational approach, reviews the related theories and patterns of creative learning, and deals with teaching creativity to teachers generally, and Iranian teachers specifically. This idea has been proposed and studied by the researcher. The main focus of this program is the pattern of creativity development, in which five basic aspects of teacher performance have been dealt with: contextual-social, affective-cognitive, mental, educational, and physical aspects.
A part of this study deals with the effect of the program and the pattern of creativity development on teachers’ skills. Data analysis by T-test for this quasi-experimental research indicated the positive effect of the program and led to the confirmation of the research hypothesis. Feedback from the teachers regarding their change of performance in the classroom, in spite of the passing of several years, indicates that they made positive use the pattern. All the teachers participating in the course stated that attending the course helped them to move away from teacher-centered toward learner-centered classes, which has made their students very enthusiastic.
