Abstract

Authentic learning enables integration of formal learning in classroom with real-world situations. In higher education, this is very practical to be implemented especially for engineering programmes that link the classroom activities to the real world application. In Malaysian Polytechnics, lecturers are not clear in implementing authentic learning although the implementation techniques are general and promote the meaningful learning. Hence, this study intended to develop authentic learning model to guide lecturers. This study was conducted in three phases with using Design and Development Research (DDR) approach. Phase 1 involves needs analysis using questionnaire, while in Phase 2, the model was developed by using Interpretive Structural Modelling (ISM) software. The model then was evaluated in Phase 3. The model consisting of 13 authentic learning activities was successfully developed in this study. The model then was divided into three other phases after the evaluation had been made: the initial phase, implementation phase and evaluation phase
