Abstract

The purpose of conducting this action research in the GR6223 course (Science, Technology and Entrepreneurship) was to improve lecturers' facilitative skills based on PBL approach to develop a module. The findings were the masters students did not understand what was a module, were not familiar with the unique features of a module and had never experience developing a module before, need a workshop style of teaching, real examples of modules and need incremental guidance weekly rather than towards the end of the semester from the facilitative techniques 'A'. Facilitative 'B' technique was able to improve the students' ability to develop a module with better quality.
