Based on the stages of R & D, the findings can be explained as follows. Firstly, based on the study of the concept  of PBL model, five stages proposed by Glickman were implemented, namely: (1) pre-conference with the lecturer; (2) classroom observations; (3) the analysis and interpretation of the observation results and set up the konverensi approach; (4) meetings after observing; (5) evaluating the four stages. All stages were carried out by utilizing information. Secondly,students’ and lecturer’s perception or understanding on PBL model is yet complete.
