Abstract

This research is intended to study the characteristics of creativity in two practical-based physics learning activities which are physics practical work (PPW) and physics innovative project (PIP) among pre-service physics teacher at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). The study was conducted in one semester among 12 physics education undergraduates from the Faculty of Education, UTM. Two sets of survey questionnaires were used to collect data on characteristics of creativity in PPW and PIP respectively and the data was analyzed using descriptive analysis. The result of the study shows that six characteristics of creativity are highlighted more when the pre-service physics teachers performed PIP except openness which are the same in both activities. Based on the findings, it is found that activities like inquiry based learning such as PIP can encourage more characteristics of creativity compared to PPW that is guided by manual books. Therefore, it is suggested that activities like PIP should be delivered to the pre-service teachers as one of the exercises to generate creative teachers.
