PBL in Data Structure course, MCU

Course overview

The course focuses on data structures and algorithms and their role in building communications layers in a program.

It further focuses on the deployment of data structures in the implementation of algorithms.

The course highlights the important role of data structures in effective decision making.

Participants in piloting 

The course targets 2nd year undergraduate students in the Faculty of Science and Technology at Mean Chey University. 12 students attended the course in the 2020 – 2021 academic year.

Use of ALIEN services and tools

Students worked on problem-solving through active learning approaches. The educator assigned problems that highlighted the relationship between data structures and algorithms. The problems challenged students to use data structures in algorithm implementation.

The activities took place in the ALIEN problem-based learning laboratory.
