Proposed Unconventional Thinking in Engineering Design (UnTiED) ideation and other ideation methods that involve a series of divergent and convergent steps are introduced in freshman engineering design projects. Process-oriented intervention strategies that are designed to teach metacognitive skills that support creativity are presented in encouraging students to think outside their usual ways of thinking. A rubric that combines both domain-specific and creativity-relevant skills is proposed and is currently being used to evaluate student projects.

Keywords: intervention strategies, unconventional ideation, creativity
