Abstract


Abstract: The Problem-Based Learning Approach in Physical Therapy Field
Works. The objectives of the study are to identify strategic application of Problem-
Based Learning (PBL) in physical therapy field works and to improve students
mastery in physical therapy in terms of cognitive, affective, and psychomotor
domains. This action research study consisted of three cycles, each of which
included four stages, namely planning, implementing the plan, monitoring
activities and progress, and reflection. The participants were 23 seventh semester
students taking physical therapy field works in 2007. In the first cycle, students
theoretical mastery was inadequate. In the second cycle they did more extensive
literature search to expand theories. In the third cycle they learned more about
empirical cases, not just theories, so that they better skills in implementing the
whole PBL activities and managed to attain the course objectives. PBL is therefore
suitable for advanced students prior to their professional development.
