SUPPORTING MERDEKA BELAJAR* PROGRAMME SEAMOLEC WITH 12 TOURISM VOCATIONAL HIGH SCHOOLS HOLD INTERNATIONAL WEBINAR SERIES

*The term ‘Merdeka Belajar’ or translated as Freedom Learning is one of Education Priorities set by the Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC) of Indonesia

SEAMEO Regional Open Learning Centre (SEAMOLEC) is one of the many Centres of the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) which focus on Open and Distance Learning (ODL) in Southeast Asia region. In carrying out its programmes and activities, SEAMOLEC operates under the coordination of MoEC of Indonesia.

Started in November 2018 SEAMOLEC conducted feasibility studies in 6 Southeast Asian countries; Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Philippines, Thailand, and Timor Leste. The studies aimed to find out the possibility for implementation of ODL programme in tourism sector by utilizing the Common ASEAN Tourism Curriculum (CATC) Toolboxes in various vocational schools in Southeast Asia region. Through the studies, SEAMOLEC gathered information related to the status of CATC implementation and seek for partnership with the institutions to support the ODL implementation. Result of the study can be accessed through this link: https://seamolec.org/researchreport

The next step of this programmes is the CATC-based Online Courses Development and Implementation in Indonesia. Started with the initiation in Indonesia, which later will be expanded to other Southeast Asian countries, in 2021 SEAMEO SEAMOLEC invites 12 vocational high schools in tourism field, Centre of Quality Assurance Development for Vocational Education in the field of Business and Tourism, and industries, with support from Indonesian SEAMEO Centres and several units of MoEC. The next activities are to develop 21 competency units which will be presented in international webinar series and online course development.

The international webinar series is prepared for 21 competency units and will be held in 2 sessions every week starting from February to July 2021. Teachers of the 12 vocational high school partners will be the resource persons and moderators of the webinar, delivering materials in English. Participants are opened for all vocational high schools, especially in tourism, but it will be opened too for other majors. In the near future, SEAMOLEC will invite and involve educational institutions from other Southeast Asian countries as resource persons or participants.

This programme was officially launched on January 20, 2021, virtually. More than 200 participants joined the event, including teachers, students, representatives from industries, and representatives from several units of MoEC.

This programme is prepared to support one of Educational Priority Programmes set by MoEC, called ‘Merdeka Belajar’. The concept of ‘Merdeka Belajar’ is translated as in accordance with the objective of ODL which facilitates students to be able to study from any time and anywhere, based on their talents, interests, and capabilities. SEAMOLEC expects this programme to be able to provide facilities for students to access learning resources.
