Abstract

This study involves forty bachelor students in the Integrated Case Study (ICS) course where a student-centred approach is used to challenge their cognitive abilities in dealing with the issues in a given case. Results indicated majority prefer learning by hearing and seeing as opposed to thinking and hands-on experience. They learn better when there is no pressure and the students with grade of 3.50 and above can study and complete assignments even when pressure is surmounting. This shows that the majority of them are not adult learners yet. This means that full time students need both pedagogical and andragogical approaches in classrooms in order to perform the learning outcomes.
