LEARNING PROCESSES

Learning processes employ hands-on experiences enabling students to actively and directly involve in the process of fun and safe learning. In the meantime, the approach used is a special interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, integrated, and communicative, and value clarification approach based on problem solving within technical and vocational education. The results of this process are positive attitude and behaviors of future researchers and experts in technical and vocational as a part of learner community who are critical, creative, and long life learners. The learning is conducted in various ways enabling to have instructional effects and nurturant effects such and open-mindedness, cooperation, and respect. The variety of learning processes include lecture (expository), inquiry, discussion, exploration, observation, problem solving, question and answer, and group works. In addition, scientific writing activities are the core of the whole gradual and systematic teaching and learning.

Last but not least, the learning processes in the master’s degree of technical and vocational education study program  focus on student-centered learning. All the processes also emphasize learning outcome relevant for the 21st century learning characteristics in the context of technical and vocational education. Students are also required to utilize current information and communication technology.

ASSESSMENT

The evaluation process in the master’ degree includes both process and result-oriented system. The system administers formative assessment aiming at acquiring information used for revising learning processes (program delivery) as well as summative assessment aiming at measuring the learning results (learning outcome).  Learning effectiveness can be viewed by comparing entry level with exit level. The assessment results are then turned into the foundation for the graduate qualification mapping. This way, the study program is able to design assitance and guidance programs if necessary. Student who have not reached the study completion criteria should take tutorial and remedial programs in accordance with the developed standards. Operationally, the assessment consists of subject assessment, per semester performance assessment, prerequisite assessment, and final program assessment. These four assessment types are an integrated entity or program. In the meantime, the success of completion of students is assessed using the following formulation
