Identification of Problems and Learning Media Needed by Biology Students in Learning Implementation in Microbiology Subjects

Herlina Herlina, Dwi Hilda Putri


Abstract. This research is a step to improve the lecture system through identification of problems experienced by students and the learning media needed in the Microbiology course. The initial stage carried out was identifying the constraints and learning media needed by students in the Microbiology course. The research subjects were lecturers of Microbiology and Biology Department students at Padang State University (N = 25). Collecting data using the observation method by distributing questionnaires covering the difficulties experienced in the learning process and identifying the needs of learning media. Based on the data from the questionnaire, it was found that the learning process was still constrained by students' understanding of the concept of microbiology which was fairly abstract and needed better supporting media such as animated videos to be able to describe the learning material more clearly.
