Abstract: Academic Frontier-based Approach (AFA) is a student-centred instructional approach used to promote active and deep learning by involving students in investigating academic frontier issues in a collaborative environment. In this paper, we discuss the student surveys conducted at the end of the study period to solicit feedback from students on their learning experience. It is suggested that AFA takes the students as the center, consolidates the academic knowledge of the students. Through the teamwork and autonomous learning, students know more about the frontiers of science and technology and open their horizon. In addition, the ability of language organization, speech, compressive resistance, communication and cooperation are all increased. Furthermore, students’ interest in studying is increased because of the autonomous learning. It is expected the popularization of the consecutive courses will certainly improve these important abilities further more. And it is hopeful that students will take advantage from the sustainable ability of autonomous learning in their future career life. (More)
