[[abstract]]The goals of the integrated proposal are to 1) rigorously examine the mechanism and the cognitive process of imagination, 2) explore the skill and technique of improving the creative imagination, 3) develop the courses and plans of fostering the imagination for the talents in some specific fields, 4) develop the assessment system for evaluating the effects of courses and plans of fostering the imagination in every related proposals and offering the objective assessment tools in the future. The processes of the proposal are divided into two stages. In the first stage, the mechanism and cognitive process of creative imagination had been investigated and discussed based on the Geneplore model. The computerized testing system of the creative imagination had also been developed. The second stage are planned in this proposal, the important imagining skills, the SCAMPER, CoRT, and TRIZ will be refine and fusing to the courses of fostering the imagination. Quasi-experiment design and the assessment tools that developed in the first stage will be used to check the effect of these courses. Beside, the differences of the imagination processes and outcomes of the expert, well-training students, and students without training, will be compared. The computerized testing system of imagination will be used to investigate the differences of the imagination types of the junior high school students, senior high school students, and college students. The results will be used to adjust and enhance the efficiency of the courses design by the other sub-projects. To sum up, the assessment tools of imagination will be developed by the head-project. The mechanism and cognitive process of creative imagination will mainly be investigated and discussed in sub-projects one. The fusion of imagining skills to the courses of shape design of products, computer aid graphic design, marketing and landscape architecture, will be carry out by sub-proposal two to five. The integrated proposals had been discussed many times and decided to focus on the industries of the transportation in the future. We expected to make concrete works on the theoretical research and courses design of the imagination.
