Study on the impact of team teaching using the rasch measurement model: Perception of students and lecturers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article reports the results of team teaching practice at the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Systems Engineering (JKEES), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). Two sets of questionnaires were used for lecturers and students to explore their perception of team teaching. A total of 21 lecturers and 253 students were chosen as survey respondents. The Rasch Measurement Model was employed to measure the reliability and validity of the survey instrument developed to evaluate the team teaching practice. Data were then analysed to identify the effectiveness of the team teaching method employed, and to measure its impact on students and lecturers. Results showed that the survey questions were developed with good individual and item reliability. Most of the respondents gave good feedback to the team teaching practice. Thus, students and lecturers perceive that team teaching as a method is effective and has positive impact on teaching and learning.
