ABSTRACT

Higher education is considered the center of scientific and social progress, because it qualifies individuals to serve society in various fields of life. Therefore, the faculty member has become the main pillar in building future generations, so his energies should be blown to make his teaching practices innovative, distinctive and creative. This study aims to develop a scale of creative university teaching practices at King Faisal University, and to know the degree of reliance of faculty members on creative teaching practices. Furthermore, it aims to know the relationship between creative teaching practices and some personality variables. To achieve this, 50 items, distributed on four dimensions, were formulated and the construct validity of the scale was tested using the Rasch Model measurement. The study sample consisted of (150) respondents. The findings showed that the faculty members rely on creative teaching practices with a high degree in the whole scale. The findings also showed that there were statistically significant differences based on gender in favor of males, and there were no statistically significant differences based on faculty, academic rank and teaching experience. This study recommends conducting more research to find out the reasons for the different level of creative teaching practices between male and female faculty members, and determine their level of performance.
