Situated in the integrated creativity framework of Csikszentmihalyi’s (2004) interrelations of three systems of domain, field, and person in determining the occurrence of a creative idea, object, or an action, this proposed three-year study intends to examine the relationships between teachers’ multi-cultural experiences (MCEs), cultural intelligence (CQ), and creativity of teachers as well as their creative teaching. To meet the research purposes, researchers will adopt a two-stage mixed method design. At the first stage, we collect responses from about 300 STEM K-12 teachers in Taiwan to the instruments of MCEs, CQ, creativity, and creative teaching. We will analyze the impact of teachers’ MCEs on their creativity teaching and further investigate the mediating effects of teachers’ CQ and creativity. In the second year, researchers adopt a qualitative research design to reveal how K-12 STEM teachers’ MCEs, CQ, and creativity shape their creative teaching, as well as how and why K-12 STEM teachers’ CQ and creativity mediate the relationship between their MCEs and creative teaching. About 15-30 K-12 STEM teachers will be recruited for the second year’s qualitative study. In the third year, the second stage of the mixed method convergent parallel design, researchers will collect quantitative data from K-12 German STEM teachers to compare the results with those obtained from the first year’s study in Taiwan. We then explore the moderating effect of country cultures on the relationships of MCEs, CQ, creativity, and creative teaching of K-12 STEM teachers. We will reveal the contributions of cultural dimensions in this moderating effect.
