Queensland teachers' conceptions of creativity : a phenomenographic investigation

Bryant, Sandra Lea (2014) Queensland teachers' conceptions of creativity : a phenomenographic investigation. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This study investigated conceptions of creativity in a group of Queensland teachers. The analysis of interview data produced precise descriptions of seven categories of meanings of creativity, delimiting the range and variance of meanings expressed. The study provides evidence of two distinct ways of experiencing and defining creativity. As a result the researcher was able to propose further research directions to extend educational understanding of creativity and recommended using the present study findings to strengthen policy and training measures for the Australian Curriculum focus on building creative capital.
