Abstract


The objectives of this research and development were to develop the learning management model and to find out the efficiency and learning satisfaction towards a learning management model to enhance problem-solving skills in modern automotive technology of undergraduate students for enterprise demands. The samplings separated into two groups. The first one was experts’ of Nissan Motor (Thailand) selected by snowball sampling method. The second group was 25 undergraduate students majoring in Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Industrial Technology, Nakhon Si Thammarat Rajabhat University selected by purposive sampling method. The research instruments were the evaluation form for appropriateness learning management model, the problem-solving skills in modern automotive technology tests, and the questionnaires for evaluating the satisfaction. The data were analyzed by percentage, mean and standard deviation. The results revealed that 1) the development of the learning management model consisted of 4 steps; namely “PIER model” and the experts’ evaluation yielded at high level ( mean = 4.44, S.D. = 0.05) and 2) the efficiency of the model showed that in the inputs phase, the learners’ scores (E1/E2) was 82.59/80.13 and the percentage of practical scores was 77.50. In the process phase, the learners’ scores (E1/E2) was 84.10/82.78 and the percentage of practical scores was 80.50, which was higher than set criteria. The outputs of the learners’ satisfaction towards the learning management model indicated at the highest level ( mean = 4.70 S.D. = 0.10).
