Hybrid Learning for Indonesian Teachers (HYLITE)

The issue of teachers’ quality and quantity has been outstanding across time in Indonesia. Efforts in teachers’ education become the priority of Government of Indonesia. In 2005, within the area of teachers’ quality improvement, Indonesia was facing huge challenge to upgrade about 66% of teachers (2,7 million) to qualify for teachers’ certification process. Especially in primary education, about 1,1 million (92%) teachers to be upgraded to an equivalent of bachelor’s degree.

The existing teacher education programs at that time were considered less than adequate to answer the challenge.  In order to accelerate the effort of improving teachers’ quality, the GOI, c.q., Directorate General of Quality Improvement of Teachers and Education Personnel (DGQITEP) and Directorate General of Higher Education (DGHE) launched the HYLITE (Hybrid Learning for Indonesian Teachers) Program in January 2007.

Facilitated by SEAMOLEC, the program was an open and distance learning program employing hybrid learning with a strong ICT-based learning component and implemented by a consortium of 23 teacher colleges.
