  •  Wattana Rattanaprom    


This study focuses on identifying the barriers and obstruction factors of Research-Based Learning (RBL) which was implemented in the schools under “Pohpanpanya” Youth Researcher Development Research Program. RBL consists of three domains: Contemplative Education (CE), System Thinking (ST) and Professional Learning Community (PLC). Those are processes of coaching and mentoring master teachers (MTs) to coach and facilitate their students for RBL. This research program was implemented in ten volunteering schools which were substantially improving the learning outcomes of their students. However, being a relatively new mode of teaching the management of the teaching and learning processes remains a challenge especially with the four main barriers; 1) teacher mindset 2) teaching methodology 3) curriculum design, and 4) academic leadership.
