Nursing education has identified in the need for nursing faculties to develop new skills, both in the education and technology. Faculty development is a core process of course development, implementation, and evaluation. Literature has indicated that workshop as one of the effective interventions for faculty development; however, few studies investigate the nursing faculty development, especially in teaching for creativity. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the participants’ satisfaction of a training workshop in northern Taiwan. This was a descriptive and cross-sectional survey, and a 21-items questionnaire was used to determine the impact of the workshop on faculty and student satisfaction. Fourteen participants divided into three groups completed the 6-hours activities of the workshop. The results showed that participants were satisfied with the learning experiences from this workshop. All participants rated over 4.0 on a 5-point Likert scale in terms of overall performance of the speaker, course content, class environment and quality of service, and self-evaluation. The workshop could help learners to grow as they “learn by doing” real creative work. It should be offered to nursing educators for better preparation of teaching creativity and innovation. Based on the study findings, the workshop design still need refinement to strength some topics such as product analysis and patent application and to consider longer time intervention.
