This study aims to enhance college students’ creative thinking and self-efficacy growth through a voluntary, intense, and well-facilitated three-week online asynchronous experimental intervention training course. The essential trained skill of this intervention focused on shaping students’ ability in observation, imagination, connection, creation, and reflection. The rationale of this interdisciplinary study integrated mindful learning principles, design thinking, and modeling and scaffolding strategies to design and deliver the course. A total of 22 students from 8 countries participated in this study.

Vivo coding and descriptive coding were used to identify patterns and categorize themes in students’ exit reflection journals from the intervention. The triangulation data analysis method was employed to check the creditability of the codes and data source from the participants’ reflection, discussion content, artifacts, online course log, and follow-up emails. The results suggested that the participants’ perceptions of creativity were changed from thinking that creativity is naturally born with, to believing they can be creative through training. Their creativity self-efficacy was raised by viewing their strengths from different perspectives and thinking creativity tasks are not complex as they thought before. The results of this study revealed college students’ fundamental challenges and potential methods to increase their creative self-efficacy.
