Abstract—This research paper presents the instructional design and development systematic activities to develop creative thinking skills of undergraduate engineering students. The step-by-step instructional design and development activities with outputs showing how instructors perform his role as a subject matter expert and an instructional designer. The research procedures were divided into 2 phases. The first phase was to present instructional design and development activities. The participants who designed instructions consisted of four volunteered engineering instructors at the Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University. The four engineering instructors studied and followed the instructional design and development activities for designing and developing their instructions. In the second phase, the designed instructional model was evaluated. The participants who evaluated the instructional model according to the evaluation form consisted of 6 experts in instructional design and engineering instruction. Data were collected and analyzed by using arithmetic mean and descriptive analysis. The research findings are as follows: the participants who designed instructions according to the instructional design and development activities could improve their instructional design skills in a high level. The six experts agree that the instructional model is appropriate in both a good level as well as an excellent level.
Index Terms—Instructional design and development activities, instructional model, engineering creative thinking skills.
