The Importance of Problem Based Learning in Islamic Higher Education

Nur Kholis

Abstract


This article aims to explain the importance of applying the Problem Based Learning (PBL) method in Islamic Religious Colleges (PTKI). this study uses literature review. The results of the study indicate that PBL is a constructive learning method that uses problems as a trigger for the learning process. This method is important for students in Islamic higher education in constructing their own learning experiences and knowledge, to improve critical thinking skills, problem solving, train communication skills, and improve student learning outcomes.

Menurut Biggs pendekatan surface learning mengacu pada aktivitas kognitif tingkat rendah dan menghasilkan capaian belajar yang tidak utuh, sedangkan pendekatan deep learning merujuk pada kegiatan-kegiatan yang tepat untuk menyelesaikan tugas sehingga hasil tercapai seraca utuh. Mendorong pendekatan deep learning sangat dianjurkan dalam pembelajaran apalagi di perguruan tinggi.
