Development of positive teaching-based learning modules in the Self-Development course
Building positive teaching is paramount to increasing learning effectiveness, especially for new students. Students face many problems transitioning from high school to the university (e.g., boredom, low motivation, adaptation process, etc.). Self-Development Courses using project-based learning and positive teaching can become the answer to these challenges. This research aims to develop a Self-Development course module based on the positive teaching paradigm. We employed the research and development approach by defining, designing, and developing the course module. We planned the course activities based on the semester’s learning plan (e.g., self-introduction activities and teaching contracts, “who am I,” strengths and weaknesses, teamwork, etc.). We tested the validity of the module using Aiken’s V. Aiken V results ranged from 0.58 to 0.83, meaning that each activity in the proposed module was valid.
