Abstract
the preliminary study conducted at The Physics Education Program course on Basic Physics course showed that most students are still not able to develop higher order thinking skills when doing the practical implementation. Their main activities are still limited to practice low-level of thinking skills. To increase the transferable skills of students, higher order thinking laboratory practicum is applied in this study. The purpose of this research is to develop practical models that can increase the transferable skills of students. The methodology used in this study is qualitative Research. The research was conducted at the Physics Education program. The population research is physics education students class 2014. The method used to collect data is random sampling in which the chosen class is class A. The data regarding the practical implementation of the students is collected through observations and interviews. The observation results show the practical implementation models used in the form of verification lab to train basic level thinking skills, and the interviews show that thinking skills trained during the lab practices are still a basic level. Thus, the need to develop practical models that can increase the transferable skills of students, so that they can be applied in daily life according to the demands of the National Qualifications Framework of Indonesia and the demand from the working world
