• Abstract

    One of the problems that is often encountered in the current study of the electrical engineering department is students’ low level of creative thinking skills. Therefore, this study aimed to test the effectiveness of the Sustainable Project Based Learning (SPjBL) learning model in improving the creative thinking skills of electrical engineering students. The experimental model used in this research was classroom action research. The research method used was an experiment with data obtained from 69 respondents from two groups of students. The obtained data were analyzed using an independent t test and NGain Score. The results showed that the SPjBL learning model was effective in improving the thinking skills of electrical engineering students. Furthermore, this research is expected to provide a comparison in determining the type of learning model that is suitable for teaching-learning activities at schools.
