Utilizing the Active and Collaborative Learning Model in the Introductory Physics Course

  •  Nguyen Nam    


Model of active and collaborative learning (ACLM) applied in training specific subject makes clear advantage due to the goals of knowledge, skills that students got to develop successful future job. The author exploits the learning management system (LMS) of Hanoi National University of Education (HNUE) to establish a learning environment in the Introductory Physics course Part 2, which supports to the blended learning, for the 1st year student. The method of pattern languages is taken to redesign learning content in the framework of ACLM, which focused on analysing real-life application and doing exercises, with the support of information and communication technology (ICT). Both formative and summative assessments were used to evaluate competency of students.

An online survey in middle course was used to collect 82 responses of students in closed with 63 questions and 6 open forms which indicated not only soft skills of students but knowledge of contents and technical enhanced. The result suggested that students should be attached to weekly tasks for doing work properly and practising to overcome negative attitudes to collaboration. Art performance in the welcome or the rest of the lecture was a solution to increase students’ learning interest.

The conclusion recommended that deploying ICT in combination of social network and LMS with blended learning mode will increase the efficiency of ACLM so it need to be studied and supported.
