One direction teaching method applied by a number of universities in Indonesia is deemed not to be able to keep up with the increasingly dynamic changes of the young generation. The principle of students as center of learning needs to be applied.
This was revealed in the report expose of the first package of the Indoped project at the opening of Indoped at Binus International University, Jakarta, Tuesday (12/4). The event, among others, was attended by Director General of Institutional Science and Technology Ministry of Research, Technology, and Higher Education (Kemristek dan Dikti) Patdono Suwignjo as well as Deputy Head of European Union Representative for Indonesia and Brunei Charles- Michel Geurts.
Indoped is a project supported by the European Union aimed to improve teaching quality in higher education institutions in Indonesia. A number of universities in Indonesia and Europe are joined in this project.
Indoped Project Head from Finland, Harri Lappalainen,explained, the principle of student centered learning should be applied. The class method is advised to be in the form of groups with the teacher taking part in an informal attitude.
Co-Founder of HarukaEdu Novistiar Rustandi, founder of online learning which has cooperated with several universities in Jakarta, uses the gamification approach to develop the curriculum, for instance by providing additional points to students who become leaders in the online discussion.
