Effectiveness of open-ended learning method in fluid mechanics laboratory course

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The theory of a principle could be further understood by performing practical analysis. Laboratory courses provide the practical application of the principle taught in lecture. Previously, laboratory courses were conducted through instruction style but with the evolving learning method, new learning method which emphasize on in-depth learning is introduced. This paper studies the effectiveness of open-ended learning method over the traditional method. The effectiveness of the activity is made through response from questionnaire and observation of both learning methods. It was noted that the openended method improves the students' understanding on the course, promotes collaborative learning, encourages creativity and innovative skills, independent thought, and communication skill. The students prefer the open-ended learning method over the traditional learning method.
