Abstract

The development of learning methods carried out in this study is a hands-on approach applying experiential learning to students. The cycle begins with a student’s learning experience, followed by an opportunity to reflect on that experience. Students can conceptualize and further what they experience and observe in their learning, which leads to future actions in which students’ processes experiment with different behaviors. This research was conducted on 89 students of the Computer Engineering Department of Andalas University who attended the Signal and Systems course. The collection of student response data to the study was carried out by providing a survey in the form of a questionnaire. The analysis was carried out by using the concept proposed in the form of Kolb’s Cycle of Experiential Learning which includes the experiential learning cycle. The application of experiential learning methods in Signal and Systems courses is considered effective to be applied to students in order to improve student skills through learning experiences obtained when hands-on. Students’ perceptions of the hands-on method indicate that the method applied has been effective in providing basic understanding for students, improving skills and basic understanding of signals and systems.
