The impact of problem-based learning on students’ competencies in technical vocational education and training


21.12.2017 kl. 13.00 - 16.00


“This study fills a research gap by investigating the impact of a PBL approach to students’ learning, technical and social competencies in TVET. The study focuses on the PBL that is newly implemented in the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programming courses at the GMI. The subjects for this study comprised of 132 Diploma students of semester three and four from the GMI who had attended the 75 hours of CNC Programming course.

This study was set up as an experimental research employing a mixed method with concurrent triangulation strategy comprising quantitative and qualitative approaches. The analysis was done using open coding, axial coding and selective coding.”
