The current study aimed to identify the effectiveness of creative problem solving strategies based on TRIZ theory in improving creative teaching skills for student teachers at Princess Nora Bint AbdulRahman University. The sample of the study consisted of (48) female student teachers, which was divided into two groups. Twenty five female student teachers were in the control group, and taught by traditional teaching methods. Twenty Three female student teachers were in the treatment group, and exposed to creative problem solving strategies based on TRIZ theory. Data was collected by using creative teaching skills questionnaire, and statistical analysis such as means, standard deviations, Independent-Sample T-test was conducted. In addition, Eta squared (η2) was computed to determine the effectiveness of creative problem solving strategies on improving creative teaching skills. Results revealed statistically significant differences between the control and treatment groups in favor of the treatment group. This indicated the positive impact of creative problem solving strategies on improving creative teaching skills.
