Effectiveness of teaching and learning method in concrete laboratory works

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The rising awareness of the importance of professional skills for engineering students has led to increased attention given by engineering schools to developing the critical thinking skills of students. Thus, this study discusses proposed methods implemented in the teaching and learning process in concrete laboratory experiments. A combination of problem-based and open-ended techniques of teaching and learning is used. The method is supported by creative lab demonstration using an IT tool to conduct flipped laboratory demonstration. Finally, an overall assessment, which consisted of cognitive and psychomotor domains, was conducted. Student feedback and performance in a Materials Technology course are evaluated in the context of the implementation of the proposed method. Student feedback generally indicated that the method was accepted as satisfactory and that it successfully improved the teaching and learning process where the three basic domains from Bloom's Taxonomy were applied.
