Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education (Ristekdikti) mentioned that higher educations must consider five aspects, they are learning preparation, policies reconstruction, human resources, research breakthroughs, and research innovation.
Master of Education Policy and Development (MKPP) University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) has been running several supporting activities, such as collaborating with other Muhammadiyah Universities. On the Education National Seminar held by UMM and University of Muhammadiyah Metro Lampung, the Head of MKPP UMM Dr. Agus Tinus, M.Pd explained, “Basically, we want to continuously make progress. One of the ways is we collaborate with other study programs from Muhammadiyah universities to achieve our goals”.
One of the speakers, Prof. Dr. Ishomuddin, M.Si conveyed that education is dynamic that educates people to be the best human resources. In this digital era, technology is a primary need. So, teaching and learning system should be based on market needs. “New model of learning brings consequences related to the education system”. Nowadays, learners tend to use digital economy pattern, artificial intelligence, big data, robotic, and so on. This phenomenon is called disruptive innovation.
Let’s take a look at collaboration culture. The millennial youths prefer quickness and accuracy, so collaboration is the answer to improve productivity. “Youths like to gather with their friends. They hang out in café, that’s just because they love to collaborate”, said Ishomuddin.
Furthermore, the challenge that higher education may face is curriculum reconstruction which is responsive to industrial revolution. All they can do is redesigning the curriculum by using human digital approach and digital-based skill. However, MKPP UMM has been starting digital-activity based. “We have arranged the curriculum which is accordance with the needs in this industrial revolution era”, added Ishomuddin. (lus)
