Abstract

Background and Objective: The curriculum development and learning management of the bachelor of science program in medical illustration faculty of Medicine Khon Kaen university, propose to produce graduates who have the knowledge and ability to produce medical media and enhance the necessary skills of medical illustration. Therefore, the purpose of this research was to design and development of a constructivist web-based learning environment to enhance creative thinking.

Methods:  The research design was pre-experimental design (One-Group Posttest-Only Design). The target group for this research was 30 participants from 2nd year of medical illustration students, faculty of Medicine, Khon Kaen university in semester 2 of the academic year 2022. The instrument in this research was a constructivist web-based learning environment, assessment form for experts, creative thinking assessment form, creative thinking interview form, learning outcome examination, and opinion survey form. Quantitative data analysis: creative thinking, learning outcome with basic statistics including percentage, mean, and standard deviation. Qualitative data analysis: assessments for experts, opinions of students' analytical interpretation, and creative thinking analyzed by protocol analysis and analytical narrative.

Results: 1) The result in the design and development of a constructivist web-based learning environment has the efficiency in all 5 aspects. 2) The result of the student's creative thinking has been found that 29 (96.67%) students have passed the predefined criteria at 70 percent, an average score was 17.07±1.78. and student’s creative thinking from the interview has been found that students have creative thinking which consists of fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration. 3) The learning outcome of students has been found that 28 (93.33%) students have passed the predefined criteria at 70 percent, an average score was 16.43±1.81. and 4). The opinions of students were suitable in all 3 aspects.

Conclusions: The design and development of a constructivist web-based learning environment had quality, can be used in learning management suitable, as well as being able to develop students in creating and seeking knowledge and enhance students to have creative thinking abilities, and can be applied in the study and continue to work in the future.
