Abstract

Critical thinking is a complex process which requires higher-order thinking to achieve the expected outcome, while creativity is strongly associated with the production of useful and unique ideas. Both creativity and critical thinking involve new perspectives which can be empowered through the implementation of integrated Problem-based Learning (PBL) and Digital Mind Maps (DMM). The present study attempted to examine the relationship between critical thinking and creativity through the implementation of the combined PBL and DMM learning model in Human Physiology and Anatomy classes. This study employed a quasi-experimental design which involved students from the Department of Biology Education, Universitas Islam Riau, Indonesia. Every aspect of the participants’ critical thinking and creativity was measured using an essay test. To reveal the relationship between critical thinking and creativity, a regression analysis was performed. The results showed that there was a significant relationship between critical thinking and creativity (Y=35.439+0.485x). It, thus, can be concluded that the Integrated PBL and DMM model can be used as an alternative approach for simultaneous empowerment of students’ critical thinking and creativity
