Course Learning Process

The OBE Learning Process in Oceanography Courses Involves Small Group Discussions and Case Studies

[Kupang/Universitas Nusa Cendana] – Education in the Nusa Cendana University (Undana) Aquaculture Study Program is increasingly developing with the implementation of the Outcome-Based Education (OBE) method in learning, especially in Oceanography courses. One of the approaches applied is Small Group Discussions and Case Studies, with a focus on aspects related to mariculture.

The OBE learning method pays special attention to the desired results and abilities that students must have after completing a course. The application of this method provides a more involved and relevant learning experience, as well as improving students' problem solving and critical thinking abilities.

Small Group Discussion: Student Collaboration in Increasing Understanding of Oceanography

One of the main components of this learning process is Small Group Discussion. Students are divided into small groups, allowing them to collaborate, discuss, and develop a deep understanding of oceanographic topics related to mariculture. With more intense interaction, students can exchange ideas, solve problems together, and hone their interpersonal skills.

The supervisor plays an important role in guiding these small group discussions, providing direction, and providing additional insight. This process not only helps students understand oceanographic concepts, but also trains them to work in teams, a skill that is very necessary in the world of work in the field of aquaculture.

Case Study: Understanding Mariculture Challenges Practically

Applying Case Studies is the next step in OBE learning. Students are given real cases related to mariculture, which allows them to apply the concepts they have learned in real-world contexts. This not only makes learning more meaningful but also helps students develop analytical, problem-solving and decision-making skills.

By considering factors such as environmental conditions, current technology, and economic aspects, students learn how to apply oceanographic knowledge to improve maricultural practices. In group discussions and class sessions, students can share ideas and solutions to address the challenges faced in aquaculture.

Benefits for Students and the Aquaculture Industry

The OBE learning process using Small Group Discussions and Case Studies in the Oceanography course provides multiple benefits. Students not only gain a deep understanding of oceanographic concepts, but also develop critical and practical skills that are indispensable in the aquaculture industry.

Thus, the aquaculture study program at Undana is committed to continuing to improve the quality of learning by applying innovative methods that are relevant to industry demands. It is hoped that students who take this course will become graduates who are ready to compete and make a positive contribution to the development of the aquaculture sector, especially in the mariculture context.
