Problem Based Learning and Students Views about Science - A Case Study

May Malaeb | Safaa Sweid [2] | Hanadi Chatila [3]


Abstract: The study was undertaken to find out the effect of Problem Based Learning (PBL) in Biology on the views about science aspects of secondary students in a private school in Beirut. Eighteen students from grade 10 were involved in the learning-teaching process of problem-based learning. The data was collected via the pre-test and post-test administration of VASS survey. The results indicated that Problem Based Learning significantly enhanced the development of the students’ core-disciplinary aspects of science including the understanding of nature of science and connecting Biology to different areas. Also, it significantly enhanced the development of the students’ metacognitive aspects of science including having meaningful understanding, meaningful learning and more control on one’s own learning. Thus, Problem Based Learning fostered the development of all the aspects of the views of science.
