Abstract: Problem-solving is an important aspect to be applied to students in preparation for challenges in learning or everyday life. Therefore, the appropriate approach that needs to be exposed to students is problem-based learning (PBM). PBM is a learning tool that exposes real problems using systematic problem-solving. In this regard, to enhance the students’ knowledge to be more creative and innovative, there is a theory that can help students to solve problems in PBM. This theory is known as the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ), which can be integrated into PBM as a guide to problem-solving more effectively. The purpose of this study is to develop the integration of TRIZ in PBM module by analyzing the feedback of format, content and usability of the module from lecturers and students. This study uses a quantitative approach involving five lecturers and 15 students. The data were analyzed descriptively and presented in the form of frequency and percentages. The findings show that five lecturers are 100%, and 15 students are 98.17% agreed with the module format. While 97.14% of lecturers and 91.8% of students agreed with the contents of the module developed. For module usability, there are 100% lecturers, and 96.2% agreed that the developed module could be used. In conclusion, this module is suitable for students to solve inventive problems in PBM which provided by lecturers.
