English Language Teachers’ Perceptions about Design Thinking

Saeda W Zebdyah


This study aimed at investigating the English Language Teachers' perspectives toward design thinking and to examine the effect of experience, gender, and qualification factors on their perspectives. The study sample consisted of 135 teachers (64 females, 33 male) from Amman 1 Educational Directorate. The researcher developed a design thinking scale, its validity and reliability were approved. The results indicated that English Language teachers had a high degree of knowledge and practice about design thinking (mean= 4.10, S. D= 0.37) and there were no statistically significant differences in the design thinking means attributed to gender, teachers’ experience, or qualification. The study recommends conducting more research on design thinking, including different samples of teachers from disciplines other than English, and conducting qualitative research to observe the degree to which teachers apply design thinking strategies.
