The growth of eLearning technologies seriously outpaces the research-based recommendation on how to apply these tools for predictable and effective results. The emerging education technologies provide an opportunity for teaching improvement. This research refers to the teaching in the field of creative design. The study helps to understand which education innovative teaching methods and learning strategies are used for teaching creative design and specifically TRIZ. The aim of this paper is to overview the innovative teaching methods for creative design and education technologies used for its teaching. The study overviews the most influential cases of creative design teaching and introduces online and digital teaching approaches based on the case study in LUT University. The learning environments for the course of “Systematic Creativity and TRIZ” are described. The review demonstrated that the most influential approaches to teaching creativity are problem solving and collaborative learning with limited technology implementation and description. The experience of teaching demonstrates that flipped classroom setup increases the engagement measured by students' high video views and involvement in the class.
