Abstract

This study aims to investigate the characteristics of creativity among pre-service physics teachers at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) in two different types of physics learning activities namely physics practical training (LAF) and physics innovation project (PIF) and compare the characteristics in both activities. The study was conducted in one semester among 12 physics education undergraduates from the Faculty of Education, UTM. The study employed three data collection methods, which are interview and field observations to investigate the characteristics of creativity among pre-service physics teacher in LAF and PIF while questionnaire survey was used to determine the differences in the characteristics of creativity in LAF and PIF. The data from the interviews was analyzed using the model of interactive analysis of qualitative data and further triangulated with the data from the observations. The data from the questionnaire was analyzed descriptively and displayed using the average percentage of positive responses by the respondents. The findings indicated that the pre-service physics teachers showed some characteristics of creativity in LAF which is openness, curiosity, imagination, confidence and divergent thinking while problem solving and uniqueness were not shown. For PIF, all characteristics were exhibit by the respondent. The comparison between characteristics of creativity in LAF and PIF showed that six characteristics more prevalent in PIF rather than in LAF except openness which is shown in both activities equally. It is recommended that these pre-service physics teachers should be given more exposure in the inquiry and discovery activity such as PIF since this activity can foster more characteristics of creativity compared to LAF which is guided by manuals.
