Oleh: Dr. H. Adie E. Yusuf, MA. Dosen Pascasarjana Universitas Pakuan

“Terpujilah wahai engkau ibu bapak guru. Namamu akan selalu hidup dalam sanubariku. Semua baktimu akan kuukir di dalam hatiku. Sebagai prasasti terima kasihku. Tuk pengabdianmu”

Petikan lirik lagu hymne Guru yang selalu dinyanyikan oleh warga sekolah pada setiap upacara peringatan Hari Guru pada tanggal 25 November dengan penuh keharuan. Ternyata liriknya telah diubah dengan menghilangkan kata “tanpa tanda jasa”. Tentunya bukan berarti kita menghilangkan peran guru yang besar dan mengurangi penghargaan bagi guru yang mulia untuk memajukan pendidikan nasional.

By Dr. Adie Erar Yusuf, MA. Associate Faculty Member, BINUS University

INTRODUCTION

One key success factor of national development is determined by the available competent and competitive  human resources, especially in the era of globalization. In this senses, education has a central role in increasing competence, and forming the required character.

The National Education System Law No. 20/2003 states that education serves to develop the ability to form character and the civilization of the dignity in the framework of the intellectual life of the nation. Education aims to develop the potential of students to become a man of faith and piety to God Almighty, it also produces precious, healthy, knowledgeable, accomplished, creative,  independent, democratic and accountable human beings.

Ray and Montgomery (2006) stated the results of the research that staff, students, and faculty believe that  character education is occurring in various forms across   the university, and that appropriate role model may have an important impact on college students.  Students  who define formal learning believe that character education occurs best, and should occur, in the classroom, while students who define judicious learning focus on extracurricular settings, especially those involving the disciplinary process.

Well educated technicians are essential to enabling the transition of Indonesia to higher-technology jobs and increasing the value of production. Striving for higher productivity and competitiveness, the government has strengthened its emphasis on developing technical and vocational education which is reflected in enhanced investments in polytechnic education. The PEDP project will support Indonesia’s economic development by increasing the supply of highly skilled workers in five sectors of the economy. This will be facilitated by improving links between polytechnics and enterprises. The project will help the Directorate General of Learning and Student Affairs (DGLSA) implement an integrated approach to improve the quality of polytechnic study programs and skills-development services that (i) ensures relevance to employers, (ii) expands access for vocational school graduates and others interested in developing higher level skills, (iii) builds the capacity of teaching staff and administrators, and (iv) upgrades facilities and equipment to better impart to learners job-ready skills. The project will help strengthen and implement the Indonesia Qualification Framework (IQF) to support quality assurance and recognize prior learning to expand applicants’ access to high-quality skills-development services available through selected polytechnic institutions. In general the project has four outputs: (i) improved quality and relevance of the polytechnic system; (ii) expanded and more equitable access to polytechnic institutions; (iii) greater private sector involvement in, and promotion of, entrepreneurial culture to strengthen polytechnic graduate competitiveness; and (iv) strengthened governance and management of polytechnic education. The impact will be the improved polytechnic education system to produce graduates responsive to the needs of the labour market and contribute toward increasing productivity in the Priority Sectors.

Journal : The Implementation of ICT based Education in Elementary Teacher Education (PGSD) in Indonesia

By Adie Erar Yusuf, HUMANIORA, Vol.7 No.1 January 2016: 8-14

INTRODUCTION
For higher education institutions to fulfill their role as incubators of knowledge and for elementary, secondary and tertiary students to acquire and use knowledge in the 21st century, they need to be connected with the world through Information, Communication and Technology. To achieve the ideal situation, the cost of internet access must be affordable and equitable across diverse socio-economic sectors of society. The National education Strategic Plan stated that ICT literacy rate among lecturers and students in higher education by 2009 is expected to achieve 80% and 50% respectively. ICT literacy includes proficiency in the utilization of computer and related programs. Teacher education institutions should also reform their curricula by integrating ICT into teacher education programs to increase ICT competencies. (Brodjonegoro, 2006)
To overcome the problem of restricted connection and bandwidth as well as high cost internet access, Ministry of National Education has developed cooperation with Indonesian Telecommunication Company (Telkom) to offer JARDIKNAS programs for school communities. In fact, ICT has been utilized in schools even though relatively small in numbers. More and more internet kiosks, not only at the post office in capital cities in the provinces but also in the districts, are available. The community has also participated in the establishment of internet kiosk. The number of schools using the internet is also increasing.

Coaching Skills

Oleh: Dr. Adie E. Yusuf, MA. USAID HELM Instructional Designer 2016

Sejarah Perkembangan Coaching

Coaching berasal dari kata dasar “coach”.  Istilah ini berasal dari nama sebuah desa kecil di Hungaria, yakni “Kocs” yang berarti  gerobak atau kereta kuda. Kocs ini  merupakan metafora dari proses coaching, yaitu membawa seseorang dari satu kondisi sekarang (present state) ke kondisi yang diinginkan (desired state). Menurut Erik de Haan, “coaching” berasal dari sebuah sarana transportasi berupa kendaraan kayu/besi yang ditarik oleh kuda di abad ke 15, maka sejak saat itu diaplikasikan ke dunia pendidikan dan pelatihan. Sarana transportasi itu adalah simbol yang dipakai untuk menjelaskan seorang coach yang membawa orang-orang ke “tempat” yang mereka inginkan. Tempat yang dimaksud bisa berarti berbagai hal, misalnya cita-cita, visi, target, potensi, kekuatan, solusi. Pada awalnya, istilah “coaching” diperkenalkan tahun 1830 yang menunjuk kepada seorang pelatih (trainer) atau instruktur. Penggunaan istilah “coach” juga berkaitan dengan olah-raga yang dipakai tahun 1831. Kata coach berarti melatih secara intensif dengan pemberian instruksi dan demonstrasi.
