Analisis Penerapan Problem Based Learning (PBL) untuk Meningkatkan Pemahaman Konsep pada Perkuliahan Kimia Analitik

Mutiah Mutiah

Abstract

Kajian matakuliah Kimia Analitik terkait dengan permasalahan nyata, yaitu menentukan apa dan berapa. Oleh sebab itu problem-based learning PBL merupakan pilihan yang tepat sebagai pendekatan dalam perkuliahan. Artikel ini mendiskusikan secara konseptual mengenai: perlunya PBL dalam perkuliahan Kimia Analitik, mekanisme penempatan dalam silabus, model perkuliahan, sistem penilaian dan keterbatasan penerapan PBL dalam perkuliahan. Secara teknis pelaksanaan PBL dalam perkuliahan Kimia Analitik dilakukan di minggu terakhir perkuliahan. Model perkuliahan mencakup tujuh tahap, yaitu identifikasi masalah, perkuliahan awal, pencarian literatur, tutorial, demonstrasi, eksperimen, dan diakhiri dengan perkuliahan akhir. Sitem penilaian mencakup: tes tertulis, laporan tertulis, unjuk kerja, sikap, dan komunikasi lisan. Beberapa keterbatasan penerapan PBL dalam perkuliahan Kimia Analitik adalah alokasi waktu, laboratorium, dan kemampuan dosen dalam menerapkan metode analisis kimia.
