The Development of Learning Model Based on Creative Thinking Competency for Teacher Training in Electrical Engineering
The purposes of this research were 1) to develop the learning model based on creative thinking competency for teacher training in electrical engineering, 2) to develop the instructional package for the professional experience course using developed learning model based on creative thinking competency, 3) to evaluate performance of the developed learning model, and 4) to compare the learning achievement between the experimental group and the control group. The research instruments consisted of the teacher’s manual, a lesson plan, teaching aids, and quizzes. The purposive sampling of this research were bachelor students who enrolled in the second semester in 2016 in the Department of Teacher Training for Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Technical Education at King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok. The sample used in two groups that consisted of 23 conventional students of controlling group and 24 students of experimental group using the KWLPA learning model. Statistical tools including mean, percentage, standard deviation and t-test Independent had been adopted in the research. The research results were as follows: 1) the quality of the developed KWLPA learning model was at a high level ( X = 4.36), 2) the quality of the research instruments was very appropriate ( X = 4.39), 3) The performance (E1/E2) of the developed learning model was equal to 72.35/81.15 which did not meet the standard criterion of 80/80, and 4) the learning achievement of the experimental group was higher than the control group at the statistically significant level of .05. The overall conclusion found that the developed KWLPA learning model can encourage students to have a higher learning achievement and an increase in creative thinking competency.
