Abstract

As one of the strategic means of enhancing future competence and career, every individual, including teachers, is strongly encouraged to pursue a higher degree. Nevertheless, lack of financial ability may become one of the debilitating hindrances for the teachers to pursue a higher degree, mainly overseas. Currently, however, the Indonesian Government strives to support Indonesians to pursue a higher degree through a scholarship mechanism called the Indonesia Endowment Fund for Education, or popularly called as LPDP. Simultaneously, various scholarship mechanisms are also offered by several governing bodies in national or international contexts, such as Australia Awards, Chevening, Fulbright, DAAD, and many others. Therefore, this community empowerment project aims to enhance the understanding of schoolteachers, student-teachers, and other education communities regarding the administrative and technical preparation to register for a scholarship and prepare for overseas study. Moreover, the participants were also expected to comprehend the academic and social conditions while studying abroad, as well as the impact of pursuing a higher degree in their future competence and career. 535 participants were attending this community empowerment program in total.

Abstract

The discourse on decentralisation in developing countries is seen as a strategy in restructuring and improving economic, social and public welfare including the education sector. This idea is fundamentally in line with the goals of Education for All (EFA). The experience of Indonesia that had shifted from a strongly centralised system to a decentralised one in the early 2000s provides an interesting case. This article argues that the current decentralised system in education has seen an insignificant effect in achieving EFA. Through an extensive literature study, this article draws attention to the  particular concerns of human resources, curriculum, corruption and poverty issues as contributing factors to the seemingly failing efforts in the decentralised settings, all in the light of Indonesia's historical development.

Abstract

Sebagai salah satu upaya mengembangkan kompetensi dan karir, Pendidikan tinggi dinilai penting untuk dimiliki oleh setiap orang, termasuk untuk para pengajar. Akan tetapi, kemampuan finansial dapat menjadi salah satu hambatan utama bagi para pengajar dalam mengenyam Pendidikan tinggi, terutama di luar negeri. Di sisi lain, Pemerintah Indonesia melalui mekanisme beasiswa pendidikan Lembaga Pengelola Dana Pendidikan (LPDP) memberikan kesempatan untuk warga negara Indonesia untuk mengenyam Pendidikan tinggi dengan bantuan pembiayaan Pendidikan. Di saat yang sama, berbagai mekanisme beasiswa pun ditawarkan oleh berbagai badan, seperti Australia Awards, Chevening, Fulbright, DAAD, dsb. Oleh karena itu, program pengabdian masyarakat ini bertujuan untuk meningkatkan pemahaman para guru-guru sekolah, mahasiswa program studi Pendidikan, serta masyarakat umum akan persiapan administratif dan teknis beasiswa. Selain itu, para peserta juga diharapkan dapat memiliki pemahaman akan situasi akademik dan sosial saat studi di luar negeri, serta pengaruhnya terhadap karir saat pasca studi. Terdapat total 535 peserta yang terdiri dari guru sekolah, mahasiswa prodi Pendidikan, dan masyarakat umum lainnya dari berbagai penjuru wilayah Indonesia yang mengikuti kegiatan lokakarya ini. Hasil kegiatan ini menunjukkan bahwa ada 112 (47,5%) peserta yang memberikan nilai maksimal untuk tingkat relevansi workshop online dengan kondisi mereka saat ini. Persentase peserta yang tinggi (33,9%) juga memberikan tanggapan positif terhadap relevansi online.
