The present article deals with methodical opportunities of pedagogical research into students’ creativity to positively influence students’ academic performance results in a technical discipline by means of an adopted by the authors problem-solving method of students’ integrative collaboration at the Structural Analysis classes in a technical university. The new skills as working in the team, the business communication , the mutual learning, the creative action are developed, and practiced, through student-centered pedagogues using integrative collaboration method. The action research in Riga Technical University is described with a view to assessing whether an educational environment fosters the development of students’ creativity potential, and to answer the research question: How does the students' creativity potential change at introducing the integrative collaborative learning method in a technical university? The hypothesis of the research that modelling of the learning environment can influence the creativity of students has been proved. An additional advantage of integrative cooperation is the gained understanding by the learners that solving of the given tasks individually and during a very limited time is impossible without achieving social norms and relationships within the team.
