Abstract

The study aims to identify the gifted students in basic interior design courses by utilizing new teaching strategies to support their capabilities and their intellectual growth within the interior design program. This research used a descriptive correlational study design to recruit the gifted students studying at Ajman University during the academic year 2018-2019, where the female students were 77% and 23%, male students – percentages based on a total of 130 students - with no statistically significant difference for teaching strategies based on gender variable. The results also showed that 66% of these students joined the interior design program due to their passion, and 95% had learned how to determine the requirements of a successful interior design project effectively. The findings have shown a significant and positive difference for teaching strategies based on 3rd level students (F=11.895, p=.007). The study concluded that the use of creative and critical thinking strategies needs the exclusion of conventional teaching methods, which include monocratic and memorizing techniques to aid, precisely the gifted students' GS, to reach the same motivational level as their counterparts.
