SEAMEO SEAMOLEC is actively involved in INDOPED Project – a project Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union in modernizing Indonesian Higher Education with Tested European Pedagogical Practices. This project was started at the end of 2015 until 2018 and it is conducted by 5 European Universities, 5 Indonesian Universities, and SEAMEO SEAMOLEC.
The universities involved in this project are; Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS) - Finland, Business Academy Aarhus (BAA) - Denmark, Inholland University of Applied Sciences - Netherlands, University of Gdansk - Poland, University of Seville - Spain, Bina Nusantara University (Binus) - Jakarta, Indonesia, State Islamic University of Syarif Hidayatullah (UIN) - Jakarta, Indonesia, Yogyakarta State University (UNY) - Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Widya Mandala Catholic University (UKWM) - Surabaya, Indonesia, and Syiah Kuala University - Banda Aceh, Indonesia
By introducing and sharing different learning methods from European university to Indonesian University partners, it is expected to bring added value to current Indonesian educational system by updating pedagogical approaches and to bridge the gap between what is taught in the university and what is required by business and industry. Those learning methods will put students as a center of learning process and many of these methods will use multidisciplinary pedagogical approaches that would allow students to prepare for challenges on the labor market. Indeed, inter faculty, inter university, and university-enterprise are needed to implement those methods. During this project, those methods are tested and adjusted from European active learning practices and embed the most valuable ones into the current structures of Indonesian partner universities.
