Abstract

Creativity has become a hot topic in academic circles, although it has only recently gained credibility as a legitimate subject for research. This paper highlights findings from a variety of research approaches (including psychometrics, cognitive psychology, historiometrics, biology, and contextual studies) with relevance to teaching and learning. Special emphasis is placed on ways to frame research as a creative endeavor.
