Teaching is a process of disseminating knowledge and specific skills (cognitive, affective and psychomotor) that combines teaching strategies and practices. Teaching strategies revolve around planning, implementation and evaluation of pedagogical context. This study focusses on the psychomotor domain of skills. The Simpson Psychomotor Domain was applied as main objective of this research to investigate the teaching strategies in practical courses implemented by instructors. The survey research design was applied using the quantitative approaches and observation method as supporting data to identify implementation of strategies that develop the psychomotor domain. This research involved 301 instructors from vocational colleges who participated in the questionnaire survey and four heads of department who participated in the observation. The results indicate that the most dominant teaching strategies applied in skill-based pedagogical context are throwback, questioning, demonstration, discussion and video screening. Observation of the four heads of department showed that they laid emphasis on implementation of the psychomotor domain through use of observation, inventory, motion control, special movement and adjustment. The results may provide new ideas for instructors to plan teaching strategies to improve the skill-based pedagogical context.
