For more than four decades, Indonesia has carried out a variety of teacher professional development (TPD) programmes. Yet the outcomes have fallen short. We summarize the findings and recommendations from the study in this infographic.
In-service Teacher Professional Development
Welcome to “Reform Unreformed”, a collaboration of Papan Tulis podcast and RISE Program in Indonesia. In “Reform Unreformed”, RISE researchers will discuss areas in the Indonesian education system that need to be reformed to improve student learning.
Despite government efforts to reform teacher professional development (TPD) in the past four decades, Indonesian teacher quality remains low. Why have the improvement efforts failed?

To evaluate how well particular education policies help schools conduct better learning, we develop Comprehensive Reading and Mathematics Assessment Tool (CERMAT), a student learning assessment (SLA) tool that can assess specifically the reading and mathematics skills of students in Grades 1–9.
To support the efforts to increase teacher competence to teach, educate, and inspire, RISE organized an education talk. This event served as a place for education practitioners to share their innovations in learning and their experiences as educators.
Teacher is the main pillar of education. Competent teacher plays an important role in generating optimal student learning outcome. Therefore, it is important to understand the challenges that teachers in Indonesia are facing today in developing their competencies, as well as the efforts to overcome those challenges.
RISE Programme in Indonesia has conducted a research on Functional Training in In-Service Teacher Professional Development (PKB) for elementary teachers in September-November 2018 in three locations: Kebumen District, Gorontalo District, and Yogyakarta City. The study aims to explore the advantages of PKB, as well as the challenges and problems faced in improving the competence and professionalism of teachers.
RISE Programme in Indonesia conducted an explorative study to see how the design and implementation of Functional Training in PKB plays a role in enhancing the professional and professional competence of teachers.
