Abstract Development of professionals ready to work in the 21st Century requires university educators to revisit a set of skills that need development and to rethink learning outcomes to be achieved. Governments, business leaders and professional associations believe that enterprise skills, which include: digital literacy, interaction and creative problem solving skills are those most needed by university graduates in the 21st Century. This paper focuses on the development of creativity skills. As an example, it analyses studies involving teaching creativity by engineering educators and proposes that in order to enhance creativity skills of their students, educators from all fields of study should consider embedding simple thinking heuristics into existing discipline courses.
