Abstract

The student-centered learning (SCL) is encompassed in learning which provides students to take an active role as the center in the learning process, to develop all its potential and explore the field of science, then reach its competence through an active, interactive, collaborative, and independent learning process. The process of learning is a cycle of being involved in a new experience (concrete Experimentation), assessing the larger context (Reflection), doing some research, discuss with others and applying the knowledge we already know to the situation (Abstract Conceptualization), doing something new or doing the same thing based on our learning (Active Experimentation). Cell Biology course is a compulsory subject to study about cells, which contributes to the competence of learning in Bachelor of Pharmacy program in the form of students’ understanding of cells as a basic unit of life. Determining the level of understanding of students in this lecture is relies on the performance, result and also the process of their assignment in completing task by learning outcomes. The learning method that has been applied is the Teacher Centered Learning (TCL), where the learning achievement measures applied are the mid- term score, individual assignments and final exam. The students’ final score are distributed as A 10%, B 50%, C 30% and D is 10%. The teaching method practiced so far with TCL has been inadequate to achieve educational goals based on learning outcomes. Therefore, the selection of assessment techniques must be adjusted to the learning outcomes and the level of competence desired by students at certain stages of their learning process. Through classroom action research (PTK) activities in this activity, research on the application of learning methods in the form of a combination of TCL and SCL was conducted. In this method, the lecturer gives lecture material for 4 meetings, then at the subsequent 3 meetings, a small group of students is given topic, discussing one of the topic of cells. The topic was initially discussed in a small group of 3 students, then presented in front of the class. The results of the observation showed that at the time of presentation the students were understand and able to explain the cells, including cell structure, function, cell membrane, cell physiology, cell environment, cell communication, cell environment, and apoptosis, correctly. This result is supported by the midterm examination, quiz, and presentation score which has increased as, A 23.89%, A- 40.299%, B+ 20.899, B 8.4%, and C 6.3%, compared to the score within the previous period of TCL learning system only.
