Analysis of Structural Relationships among Predictors of Collective-creativity in Communities of Convergence


Background/Objectives: This study examined the impact of variables (mutual collaboration, participative negotiation, creative activities, innovative alternatives) collective-creativity in communities of multidisciplinary convergence. Methods/Statistical Analysis: 1,177 students among engineering, science, social science, art colleges in nationwide were sampled. For the statistical analysis, analysis of covariance structure by AMOS 18.0 was applied. Findings: Results from structural equation modeling analyses indicated that a hypothesized model produced a better fit to the data than a comparative structural model. The hypothesized model shows the following results. On the basis of the hypothesized model, mutual collaboration effected to directly participative negotiation and innovative alternatives and participative negotiation effected to directly creative activities, creative activities effected to directly innovative alternatives, mutual collaboration effected to indirectly innovative alternatives by participative negotiation and creative activities, participative negotiation effected to indirectly innovative alternatives by creative activities. Application/ Improvements: This study suggested the mutual collaboration, participative negotiation, creative activities and innovative alternatives are significantly variables to facilitate the collective-creativity in multidisciplinary convergence.
