Seed pathology is one of the elective courses in Plant Protection Departement. Seed pathology studies about plant diseases transmitted through seeds, the mechanism of infection in seeds, survival time and factors that affect the survival of pathogens in seeds. The number of topics taught in the course can be quite a challenge for students. To follow up on this problem, a learning strategy is needed in accordance with characteristics of subject contained in seed pathology. Small Group Discussion (SGD) learning method approach is expected to be a solution to problems above. Development of learning methods conducted in this study is method of learning in SGD. In this approach, discussions in small groups about material are planned at the initial meeting. These small groups of students will present the results of their discussion (according to topic of lectures every week), other designated groups will ask a number of questions related to material presented, subject matter is focused on the activeness of each student, lecturer act as motivators and facilitators. Results showed that application of SGD learning method: 1) can improve students’ understanding of seed pathology, 2) can improve student learning achievement for the better, which can be seen in the value distribution of student score that is close to the normal distribution curve.
