ABSTRACT

This study examined the structural relationships among learning organization culture, teachers’ knowledge creation practices, and the level of teachers’ creativity in Career Technical Education (CTE) schools and investigated the mediating effect of teachers’ knowledge creation practices to explain the relationship between learning organization culture and the level of teachers’ creativity. A total of 304 CTE teachers across one of the central states in the US were used as the research sample. The study employed hierarchical multiple regression and structural equation modeling. The study found the structural relationships among the research variables including learning organization culture, teachers’ knowledge creation practices, and the level of teachers’ creativity. Furthermore, knowledge creation practices of teachers were found to mediate the relationship between learning organization culture and teachers’ creativity levels. Results suggest that CTE schools could be creative institutions and thus be more effective by building the learning organization culture along with promoting knowledge creation practices among teachers.
