In recent years, there has been an increasing amount of literature on critical thinking and deep learning. Conversely, the traditional pedagogical methods of teaching lack the potentiality to make deep learning especially for the practice-oriented courses such as programming languages. Thus, this study is designed based on the Project-Based Learning (PBL) and Role-Playing (RP) which are integrated to enhance deep learning for the programming languages course. PBL gives the students control of their work in both a literal and figurative sense. On the other hand, RP plays a complementary part to assist teaching and assess the learners’ motivation, satisfaction, and learning achievement. Therefore, the curriculum content is mapped into the designed project and roles to provide a scenario learning environment. Hence, this research for learners will be beneficial to teach and reinforce skills that prepare learners for their future careers, such as collaboration, problem-solving, creativity, and communication.
