Abstract

The purpose of this study is to share information about the necessity of multicultural education in Indonesia through online teaching held at National Dong Hwa University, Taiwan, and Indonesia University of Education, Indonesia. As multicultural education will help studentscreate equal educational opportunities from diverse racial, ethnic, social-class, and cultural groups, one of its important goals is to help all students acquire the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to function effectively in a pluralistic democratic society and to interact, negotiate, and communicate with people from diverse groups in order to create a civic and moral community that works for the common good. This study has implemented “Dick, Carey & Carey model” through online teaching approach. This research involved one male and fourteen female of fourth semester undergraduate students majoring in Early Childhood Teacher Education at Indonesia University of Education. The results may not be generalized to other teaching institutions due to the limited number of the participants. This research was conducted in the Department of Curriculum Design and Human Potentials, National Dong Hwa University, Taiwan and in the Department of Early Childhood Teacher Education, Faculty of Education, Indonesia University of Education. The distance between Taiwan and Indonesia, limitation of the media, tools and internet connection did not affect the learning process as long as the teacher prepared the needed materials. Online teaching could achieve good improvement, similar to traditional teaching using “face-to-face” situation. By using Dick, Carey & Carey’s instructional system design, students were able to enhance their understanding about this theme of learning. This condition showed the increase of students’ performance mean scores from 5.142 to 8.928 with four students able to get posttest scores 100% correct, seven students 90% correct, two students 80% correct, and only one student 60% correct. According to the percentage of the average score of posttest, the teaching activity by using this approach has succeeded to improve the students’ understanding about multicultural education. In addition, the percentage of each item has increased as well. The comparison between pre- and post-test has shown that the lowest score on pretest was 2.0 and the highest one was 7.0. The result has dramatically increased on the posttest scores with the lowest score 6.0 and the highest score 10. The rising scores ranged between 2-6 scores with an average of 3.785 point. Consequently, the online teaching by adopting Dick, Carey & Carey’s ISD model has improved student’s learning performance.

Abstract

In Indonesia, language endangerment is primarily related to language shift. Data show that the most important symptoms of language shift and of the vitality of a language are number and quality of the domains in which it is used and transmitted. The second crucial symptom of language endangerment is the loss of transmission from one generation to the next. This is what is now being seen in many communities across Indonesia where children are no longer acquiring their parents’ language. There are two general endangerment scenarios that have occurred in Indonesia. The first is the immigration scenario in which members of another speech community from outside the area move in and due to economic and political advantage essentially ‘take over’ a local speech community, imposing their own language. The second is the emigration scenario in which members of a local speech community temporarily migrate outside of the community for education or work, and on returning bring the dominant language from outside into the community. Finally, we can now find in many parts of Indonesia that social changes including economic, educational, and political contexts, promote a shift from local to dominant language.

Abstract

The purpose of this research is to examine the relationship between self-directed learning, motivation to learn, and learning organization at one public university in Malaysia. Ninety two academic staff were selected through stratified random sampling by post of Professor, Associate Professor, Senior Lecturer, and Lecturer. Three research objectives frame the research: (1) to determine the level of learning organization, self-directed learning, and motivation to learn among lecturers; (2) to determine the relationship between self-directed learning, motivation to learn, and learning organization among lecturers; and (3) to determine the contribution of self-directed learning and motivation to learn on learning organization among lecturers. Descriptive analysis was used to determine the level of self-directed learning, motivation to learn, and learning organization. Pearson Product Moment Correlation’s test was used to determine the relationship between self-directed learning, motivation to learn, and learning organization. Regression analysis was used to determine the contribution of elements of self-directed learning and motivation to learn on organizational learning. Based on the findings of the study, recommendations and policy implications are discussed and directions for future research are provided.

Abstract

The Law Number 12 of 2012 concerning Higher Education (UUPT) stipulates that all State-Owned Legal Entity Universities (PT-BHMN) to be changed into Legal Entity State University (PTN-BH). The change provides opportunities to seven PT-BHMNs to design new statutes. The model of PTN-BH is similar to PT-BHMN, except that PTN BH’s financial system must follow the regulations set by Public Service Body (BLU). Basically, it is a strategic policy, although complex problems often arise in its implementation. With its PT-PKBLU status, UPI has not yet met the criteria of self-directing, self-motivating, self-regulating, self-supporting, self-assessing, and self-decision making in order to respond to challenging situations, as the regulation is rigid and set forth by government. The problem lies in how to put UPI in its role and position as PT-PKBLU effectively and efficiently while also being accountable and competitive. This is not easy. It takes a paradigm change and unconventional managerial strategy. Today, the number of private universities is increasing and each of them offers advantages. UPI must always be ready to compete with other universities, both private and state universities. However, compared to other state-owned universities, UPI is still left behind. Therefore, this research will focus on UPI’s competitiveness. To find out how UPI can improve its competitiveness to be a research-based teaching university, the writer is going to focus on a value creation model, excellent services, and UPI’s image which influence the improvement and enhancement of competitiveness. The units of analysis of the research were graduate students from 40 departments at UPI. To fid out the influence of each proposed indicator, the research employed SEM analysis, in which each variable was tested by a measurement model. The results show that a value creation model, superior services, institution’s image, and UPI’s competitiveness can lead UPI to be a research-based teaching university.

Abstract

This study was intended to investigate the development of students’ mathematical logical thinking ability and self-regulated learning through Problem-based Learning (PBL). This study was a part of a master thesis and a sub-study of a Postgraduate Research Grant from DGHE in2013. This study was a pre-test-post-test quasi-experimental control group design involving 93 eleventh-grade students of a senior high school in Karawang which were chosen puposively. The instruments of this study were an essay test on mathematical logical thinking, a self-regulated learning scale, and a scale measuring students’ perception of PBL. The study revealed that students getting treatment on PBL attained better grades on mathematical logical thinking ability than students taught by conventional teaching, athough the grades were at low level. However, there was no difference in the grades for self-regulated learning between students in the two groups, although the grades were fairly good. Also, there was no correlation between mathematical logical thinking ability and self-regulated learning with students’ positive opinions toward PBL.

Abstract

This sudy was intended to examine the role of prior mathematics ability (PMA) and contextual teaching approach with mathematical manipulative (CTL-MM) to the achievement of mathematical connection ability (MCA) and self-confidence (SC) of junior high school students. This study was part of a master thesis, and it was a sub-study of a Postgraduate Research Grant from DGHE in 2013 as well. The study was quasi-experimental with pre-test post-test control group design, involving 67 ninth-grade students from a junior high school in Bandung. The instruments of this study were an essay test on mathematical connection, a self-confidence scale, and a scale on students’ perception toward CTL-MM. The result of the study revealed that CTL-MM was better in improving students’ MCA, N-Gain of MCA, and SC. This was shown by students’ grades of MCA and SC which were better in the group taught by CTL-MM than students’ grades in the group taught by conventional teaching. While their grades of SC were better, the grades of MCTA were at low level. However, there was a moderate correlation between mathematical connection and self-confidence though students demonstrated positive perception toward the  implementation of CTL-MM.

Abstract

Ensuring staff display best practices when handling children at childcare center is a task that requires the management to instil knowledge of child development and develop the skills for maintaining childcare. This paper unfolds the initiative of a childcare manager who believes in the necessity of conducting research about staff skills and level of knowledge to ensure the quality of childcare service. Therefore, a case study was conducted to identify the key areas of a quality childcare centre: staff relationships with children and peers, partnerships with families, programming and evaluation, children’s experiences and learning, protective care and safety, health, nutrition and well-being, and management to support quality. The questionnaire was adapted from the Quality Improvement Accreditation System (QIAS) model and administered to all staffs at the center. This research discovers three areas in which each of them (1) reflect staffs' ability to implement new knowledge; (2) need further training and guidance; and (3) need urgent consistent training and monitoring. Furthermore, this study also presents discussion between the researcher and the manager to enhance staff development.

Abstract

This current research aims at revealing factual ESP practitioners’ roles at the tertiary level of education in Malang City, Indonesia. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews and a survey using questionnaires involving 22 ESP practitioners selected randomly from several universities and colleges in Malang. To collect data on the roles of ESP practitioners, the present study adopted two sources in the questionnaires: First, the roles of ESP instructors as teachers, course designers, materials providers, researchers, and evaluators as proposed by Dudley-Evans and St. John (1998), and secondly as a practitioner who has intercultural competence and professional activity competence as defined by Luka (2004) and ethnography (Wall, 2014). The findings showed that the majority (70%) of ESP practitioners realized their roles and some (30%) claimed to learn more on mastering contents, providing materials, conducting research on needs analysis, learning intercultural competence, and realizing the needs to have experiences in industries or related work places of the students. Concerning their ethnography, the majority of ESP practitioners did not have the opportunity to teach, to have internship, and to work in industries. Only 2 (9.1%) ESP practitioners studied the field of what students learn. Future research on the collaboration between academics and practitioners is needed to make ESP classrooms a ‘real world’.

Abstract

The council for revitalization of education has submitted a proposal to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for educational reforms to make English language courses compulsory in the fifth and sixth grades. The majority of elementary school teachers are now worried and lacking in confidence to teach English, as they feel they are ill-equipped for their new role as language instructors. According to Keith Schoch’s article Picture Books across the Curriculum, picture books deserve a place in the upper elementary and middle school grades for a number of reasons: If chosen with consideration for the interests of the students and used in ways that are appropriate for learners, picture books can provide valuable opportunities of language-rich experiences and interactions. Thus, the present study firstly describes and analyses some of the challenges facing English education in Japan by relating to its wider social setting. Secondly, the study analyzes how teachers perceive they can promote language learning in their EFL classrooms through the medium of picture books. Thirdly, the study discusses the merits of using picture books in the upper elementary and middle school English education from the viewpoint of English language learning, and then investigates topics and themes of a picture book which illuminate some universal aspects of human condition.

Abstract

This research is motivated by the empirical conditions related to poor performance of human resources in various institutions in Indonesia. This research focuses on the uneven gains of competitive human resources due to workers’ characters which still prioritize routines and the fact that quality-oriented work culture has not been strongly established.. The solution offered is a model of human resource management that emphasizes the interaction between personal and situational factors that are directed at the creation of improved performance and productivity, as stated in behaviourist theory. Based on the above explanation, the aim of this second year research is to measure the effects of the two previously mentioned factors on performance. The research adopted quantitative approach with explanatory survey method. First year research was focused on an exploration with inductive approach to map the determining factors for variables that will build a model of human resource management in achieving superior performance. Second year research used explanatory survey, combining multiple regression analysis techniques to test the causal relation between variables, while the third year research will use Research and Development method to test the hyphothetical model. The subjects of this research were employees in educational institutions (Indonesia University of Education and Bandung State Polytechnic ), banks (West Java-Banten Bank and Indonesian People’s Bank), business institutions (Advent Hospital), and government institutions (Local Government Agencies in Bandung). The size of the samples was taken proportionally from each work unit by using proportionate random sampling. The number of units of analysis was 239 respondents determined by Solvin formula. The instruments of this research consisted of questionnaires, interview guide, and documentary study. The instruments were validated by expert judgment. The data were processed with the aid of SPSS version 21 and AMOS to find the causal relationship between variables, and regression analysis to identify variables forming superior performance. Based on the findings, it can be concluded that all personal aspects and situational aspects were proven to have significantly positive effects and contributions to create superior performance. The hypothetical model developed in this first and second year research will be tested in the next year’s research.
