Constructing an Instructional Model Based on the Problem-based Learning Approach to Enhance Undergraduate Students' Critical Thinking

This research is to create a context of learning for enhancing undergraduate students’ competence in the implementation of PBL approach in large class. The experience from previous studies suggested that the pedagogy for PBL should be contextualized for their dynamic nature. The class and course require more structure than smaller classes. PBL utilizes real-life problems, not only are students motivated to seek the knowledge that is needed to solve the problems, but also have to understand the information well enough to apply the knowledge to problem solving. PBL is therefore a kind of the transformation of learning. Thus, the purpose of this study is to develop a teaching model for enhancing undergraduate students’ critical thinking and approaches to learning by applying PBL approach. The objectives of this research are to formulate strategies to develop a module using PBL approach for large class and evaluate the effect of PBL on students’ approaches to learning and critical thinking.
