ISLAMIC EDUCATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY MUSLIM SOCIETIES:
CHALLENGES & WAYS FORWARD

Abdullah Sahin

University of Warwick, UK

Abstract: Muslim societies across the globe are experiencing a complex set of sociocultural, educational, political and economic  challenges. It appears that most of the reform initiatives inspired by the zeal of religious revival or enforced by Western secular agendas have largely failed to produce the desired change and transformation that these societies desperately need. The internal and external factors that have contributed to this failure are equally complex, while their genesis lies deep within both the recent and distant historical legacies of these societies. The trauma of Western  colonialism and the subsequent post-colonial reality have forced modern Muslim  societies to reshape themselves in the image of European nation states. This experience has left the Muslim world with deep ethnic, sectarian, cultural and geographical fault lines that have, in turn, created long-term uncertainties, structural  inequalities, and often tribal and reactionary self-understandings, that all continue to define the  crises facing today’s Muslims worldwide. The forces of globalisation centred around the profit driven values of a market economy and the increasing impact of the digital revolution in shaping the contemporary world have intensified the challenges facing Muslim societies. They struggle to  meaningfully manage the inter-generational change, internal ethnic, cultural and religious diversity and address the rise of religiously-motivated extremism as well as the concerns around gender equality, human rights and socio-economic justice. The first part of this paper will draw attention to the consequences of these multifaceted challenges and argue that they become detrimental when Muslim societies no longer show an internal educational strength, resilience and confidence to engage and respond to these multifaceted challenges.  It will further discuss that  the internal educational weakness constitutes the real dynamic shaping the crisis at the heart of  contemporary Muslim societies. The second part of the paper will examine the specific challenges facing Islamic Education and its traditional institutions within contemporary Muslim societies. Both formal and informal Islamic Education provision remain crucial in the formation and continuity of meaning and values embedded at the core of the self-understandings of 21st century  Muslim polities. However, this paper argues that there is an urgent need to rethink the overall Islamic educational culture and the role it plays within the way these societies perceive and manage this unprecedented rapid socio-cultural change in their midst. The paper will critically assess still influential but largely reactionary 19th and 20th century attempts to reform Islamic Education. The paper highlights the need for an urgent paradigm shift in Islamic Education if it is going to act as a cultural capital and catalyst, rather than a hindrance, in enabling contemporary Muslim societies to meaningfully redefine themselves in the face of such daunting challenges. Islamic Education provision remains mainly focused on retaining certain forms of transmitted information and reproduction of identity narratives through a dominant and often authoritarian pedagogy of repetition. As such, it is largely unable to facilitate learners’ engagement with the diverse inherited indigenous knowledge-genres and the wider world around them. More significantly it does not appear to develop learner’s  reflective pedagogic competence crucial in nurturing the desire to meaningfully embed and be transformed by this specific educational experience in their lives. The paper concludes by offering a transformative and holistic perspective on Islamic Education and argues that it should be recognised as an interdisciplinary field of research, teaching and professional development. The theological, empirical social science and pedagogic sciences remain critical in advancing new theoretical insights and bringing about creativity in curriculum design, teaching methods, assessment and development of learning resources. It is through the presence  of a dynamic Islamic educational culture that the values and narratives informing individual and  collective identities of these societies will be refreshed and meaningfully rearticulated within an ever changing modern world. The strength of the Islamic educational infrastructure, in turn, will ensure the emergence of competent socio-economic and political institutions maintaining the welfare and dignity of all within contemporary Muslim societies.

 

SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE UNIVERSITY:

PERSPECTIVES OF UNIVERSITY’S TOP MANAGEMENT LEADERS

Abstract:  The growing concern for universities to contribute to the betterment of the society and in helping nation building has initiated more robust and systematic effort on university-community engagement (UCE) initiatives.  UCE is described by Carnegie Foundation for Advancement of Teaching as the collaboration between higher education institutions (HEIs) and their larger communities (local, regional or state, national, and global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.  Involvement in UCE activities progresses from informing to consulting, involving, collaborating, and lastly, empowering the community.  It may be in the form of service, outreach, partnership or curricular. Thus the term socially responsible university was proposed by Teichler (2017) which refers to the need for a university to be relevant to the society and that “university has to pay attention as well that it serves the generally agreed function of generating, preserving and disseminating knowledge appropriately”.  However, this function is the least emphasized by the university community and in criteria for promotion.  This paper examines the nature of and the factors affecting universities’ engagement with their communities from the multiple perspectives of top management leaders of the university.  Specifically, the research sought to access views on UCE and explores cultural and institutional barriers to involvement, and levels of recognition, support and reward for community engagement. The discussion presented in this paper reflects two perspectives from the respondents; their beliefs of what is currently occurring in their universities and their views on what ought to be occurring.

 

ISLAMIC STUDIES IN EDUCATIONAL SETTINGS: A CASE FOR RENEWAL

Mohamad Abdalla

Centre for Islamic Thought and Education, University of South Australia


Abstract:
A major aim for the establishment of Islamic schools pertains to the preservation of the ‘Islamic’ in terms of religious matters such as faith and practices. However, despite this noble aim, and the obvious significance of Islamic Studies as a key learning area or subject in Islamic schools, no empirical research exists to date that examines the nature, scope, and relevance of Islamic Studies as taught within ‘Islamic’ schools. This study utilised qualitative research methods to explore the strengths and weaknesses of Islamic Studies, the challenges faced in the teaching and learning of Islamic Studies, and the attitudes of students toward the relevance and effectiveness of Islamic Studies to their lives as young Australian Muslims. A key finding was the absence of an Islamic Studies curriculum and syllabus in Islamic schools leading to a number of problems including lack of overarching approach encompassing aims, goals, plans, decision-making process, procedures and vision for Islamic Studies. The result, according to Islamic studies teachers, is chaos and confusion in implementation of Islamic studies, and a lack of systematic approach to Islamic Studies subjects making it difficult to teach. To students, the result is an Islamic studies that is boring, repetitive, out of context. Biased and irrelevant to their lives. This presentation argues for a renewal in Islamic studies curriculum, for Islamic schools in Australia and elsewhere.

 

THE CONSTRUCTION OF EPISTEMOLOGY OF ISLAMIC EDUCATIONAL KNOWLEDGE

Abuddin Nata

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

 

Abstract: Usually, every discipline of scientific knowledge has special epistemology. Through this epistemology not only all branches of scientific knowledges could be constructed, but all problems of those scientific knowledge could be solved. Islamic education is one of discipline of Islamic studies that talking about the concept and theory of education based on the basic of Islamic teaching, namely the revelation (The Holly Qur’an), the prophet Muhammad tradition (al-Hadits), and rational exercise. (See: O yee believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger and those changed with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day that is best, and most suitable for final determination. (Q.S. An-Nisa, 4:59).
Difference with the other branches of Islamic studies, like Qur’anic exegesis, Islamic Jurisprudence, and theology, those has epistemology, that the Islamic education not yet has  epistemology. The attention of Moslem  scholar  to epistemology of Islamic education was reduced  by their attention to ethic and attitude  for student and teacher in teaching and learning process. Based on this condition, there are many problems of education that not yet could solve. Further this was implicated to the low quality of Islamic education, especially if we compared it with the other quality of education in the world. This paper will explain about the meaning of Islamic education   epistemology and its function in developing and solving some problems of Islamic education. Besides that, this paper will explain about the  some methodologies in epistemology of Islamic education.

ENGAGING YOUTH THROUGH YOUTH-ADULT PARTNERSHIPS (Y-AP):

IMPLICATIONS FOR EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS

Steven Eric Krauss

Universiti Putra Malaysia


Abstract:
In educational settings the world over, youth are increasingly disengaged from schools and communities. Increased dropout rates, truancy, crime, and general malaise within schools and youth programs indicate a disengagement problem in the context of youth learning spaces. Creating learning settings where young people feel valued, have a sense purpose, and find relevance to personal goals and futures, remains a challenge. In this presentation, I present the concept of youth-adult partnership (Y-AP) as a promising strategy for addressing the challenge of youth engagement. Y-AP is based on the premise that adult-supported youth voice on issues that affect young people will result in greater perceived value in education, and consequently, greater investment in learning by students. Drawing mostly on research from youth development organizations and afterschool programs that report high youth motivation and empowerment among young people, educators have begun to turn to similar strategies. Opportunities for voice in shaping curriculum, co-constructing assignments, and immersion in consequential activities, are found to promote student engagement. Students and youth who express voice on issues that affect them (i.e., school schedule, choice of classes, learning modality, program decision-making) are more likely to see value in their education, and consequently, become more invested in their learning. Diverse case studies from the U.S., Nigeria and Malaysia are presented to showcase how Y-AP can bring adults and youth together on issues of mutual concern, and create more engaging educational settings for young people. The presentation concludes with four strategies for implementing Y-AP in organizations.

 

ISLAMIC EDUCATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY:

SOME EMERGING TRENDS AND CHALLENGES

Muhammad Zuhdi

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

 

Abstract: The growing number of Muslim population in the world is followed by the increase of Muslim schools all over the globe. At the same time, the world is constantly changing and the demand to ensure that education is really preparing young students to excel in the 21st century is increasing. The 21st century brings a lot of challenges to education as science and technology grow very rapidly and change various aspects of human lives. The question is then how Muslim schools help young Muslims to prepare for their future. This study explores recent changes in Muslim schools in several countries and identifies challenges that Muslim schools are facing. It uses various available publications as the source of information as well as personal experiences in meeting with education experts and practitioners. The study found that the major challenge that Muslim schools is facing is that Islamic education is struggling in between maintaining tradition and focusing on science and technology development. That means Muslim schools is in the cross-road of either giving students more lessons on religion to nurture their Islamic identity or more scientific knowledge and exploration in order to contribute the wider society. As a result, the study found different types of Muslim school as reflections to different responses to the above problem.

 

CHARACTER EDUCATION IN ISLAMIC SCHOOLING

Dylan Chown

Centre for Islamic Thought and Education, University of South Australia

 

Abstract: This presentation examines character education within contemporary Islamic schooling contexts. The virtues of good character are replete in the Islamic tradition and thus character development is central to the aims and purpose of Islamic education. Despite this, character education remains an under researched field in Islamic schooling. Islamic schools employ various character education models, some add on and some more holistic and whole-school. What is lacking is empirical research evaluating how effective such models and approaches have been. This presentation offers a summary of contemporary models and approaches implemented in Islamic schooling. It will consider the principles of Islamic education that would inform character education approaches appropriate for Islamic schooling contexts with implications on pedagogy, teacher training and further research to be discussed.

 


 

INCLUSION OF MUSLIM EDUCATION IN 21st CENTURY NATIONAL CURRICULUM:

AN AUSTRALIAN PERSPECTIVE

Deborah Price
University of South Australia


Abstract:
Global initiatives in national curriculum development have been driven by the pursuit of a universal design for learning aiming to provide the ‘cornerstone on which all instruction is anchored’ (Lieber, Horn, Palmer & Fleming, 2008). Such universal design is premised to be responsive to a wide range of students in heterogeneous classrooms, reflecting variety and flexibility in content representation, engagement and opportunity to express knowledge for a diversity of learners (King-Sears, 2008). Universal national curriculum would provide all teachers with a consistent and comprehensive guide of ‘what to teach’, that is culturally responsive and inclusive. However, to date, national curriculum design has fallen short in being inclusive of the diversity of all learners. This paper explores the progress of the Australian Curriculum in fulfilling its aim of designing a curriculum for all.  The objective of this paper is to critique the opportunities and challenges in providing language, knowledge, content and assessment inclusive of Muslim perspectives and values. In applying Nancy Fraser’s (1989, 2009) principles for social justice, the following the questions will be explored; Who is meaningfully represented in constructing, evaluating and framing future directions for socially just curriculum? In what ways are students and their diversity recognised in curriculum? In what ways does the Australian Curriculum act to redistribute education goods for empowered social life? Implications of this critique aim to inform future social justice national curriculum initiatives including: strategic policy implementation inclusive of Muslim society educator contribution; challenging debates on separate versus universal national curriculum design; and reinforcing the interconnections between curriculum and pedagogy with curriculum defined as what teachers enact in their classroom (Boomer 1991, 1999). As Hickey Moody et al. (2016) reiterates ‘pedagogy can be conceived as an open, continuously created and recreated process that is specific to intra-actions of difference, not grounded in existing knowledges that attempt to equalize, normalize or fall back on traditions of established values, concepts and practices’ (p. 15).

 

A PROPHETIC PEDAGOGICAL FRAMEWORK FOR ISLAMIC SCHOOLS

Muhammad Abdullah

Centre for Islamic Thought and Education, University of South Australia


Abstract:
During the last 35 years Islamic or Muslim schools have sprung up in Europe, North America and Australia. Reasons for the establishment of these schools generally pertain to Islamic faith and quality of education. In the main the desire of parents is for their children to both maintain their faith and be positive participants in and contributors to society. In the struggle for legitimacy in regards to both the Muslim and wider communities there is a tendency for schools to concentrate on academic results and the formalities of Islamic faith rather than a holistic quality education for all. The schools are struggling to achieve the goals for which they were established. Researchers in the field argue that there is a need for these schools to examine pedagogical issues rather than just the addition of Islamic subjects and curriculum Islamisation. This paper presents the findings of PhD research into the Hadith literature and suggests that a fertile synthesis of the pedagogical principles of the Islamic tradition, particularly prophetic principles, and the pedagogical principles of contemporary educational thought, is the first major step required for these goals to be achieved. Such a synthesis is consistent with the manifestation of Prophetic principles throughout the history of the Muslim world and would give an explicit Islamic pedagogical framework for teachers, many of whom have also come from vastly differing education systems. Such a framework applied across all subjects allows students the opportunity to confidently experience an integrated approach to knowledge consistent with their Islam.

LITERACY AND CHARACTER AS THE SOUL OF EDUCATION

Itje Chodidjah

Independent Trainer and Teacher Trainer

 

Abstract: It is believed that through education children learn how to learn and behave. In the context of formal education, the notion of literacy and character building across curriculum has been discussed for quite some time. Curriculum of Excellence in Scotland, for example, places literacy at the heart of the school curriculum. Character development may lie on the way teachers deliver the instruction as well as the content of subject matters. The talk will discuss the philosophy behind the notion above and how schools put literacy and character development as the soul of in formal education. How can regulators, schools, teachers, and parents integrate the soul into the education of the children who live in this dynamic the 21st century.

AN INDONESIAN CONTEXT

Ahmad Madkur, Azkia Muharom Albantani

IAIN Metro Lampung, UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

Abstract : Recently, there seem a significantly growing number of studies in the relationship of religion and pedagogy, particularly, in foreign language teaching. In Indonesia, the world’s biggest Muslim country where the number of Islam-affiliated schools play a role in shaping the educational policy, it is considered that teachers find a good way to take part in delivering Islamic values while teaching a foreign language. However, it is still hard to find the practical and effective strategies to implement both. Moreover, not all experts say yes to include religious teachings and language pedagogy. This paper aims at comprehensively discussing the importance and the practices of instilling Islamic values in a foreign language classroom. By doing this, it is expected that the Muslim learners could both achieve the foreign language skills and, at the same time, become more aware of filtering the culture, which is irrelevant with theirs, contained in a foreign language they are learning.

MUSTAQILLI ALTERNATIVE LEARNING MODEL IN ARABIC LANGUAGE

Raswan

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

 

Abstract: This study attempted to analyze the Arabic “alternative” learning model, Mustaqilli Model. It is said to be an alternative, because this model is not the work of “Arabic educational specialists” in a formal sense. Mustaqilli’s model strives to contribute to faster and comprehensive Arabic learning. According to his supporters, he is seen as being effective in creating Arabic skills in a flash. The advantages of this model are, firstly, the mustaqilli module capable of presenting Arabic material with comprehensive, self-directed learning, presenting nahwu and sharaf dictionaries with chart models (such as concept map models), and in it having examples of diverse and more qualified examples besides the term -the term is nothing that deviates from the usual and common nahwu and sharaf rules. Secondly, in learning mustaqilli there is a diversity of examples and illustrations, self-directed learning and continuous drill and presentation of nahwu and sharaf dictionary and learning is done by using the chart so that it will facilitate students to understand the concept of nahwu and sharaf being studied. Thirdly, the surplus of mustaqilli also exists in its acknowledged existence by Middle Eastern and Western clerics as well as teachers in its meager places chosen with clear criteria and in accordance with the objectives of the mustaqilli itself.

RATIONALISM OF BAS’RAH AND KUFFAH ON ISTIMBAT HUKUM

Wati Susiawati

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

Abstract: Basrah and Kufah, the two big cities that became the axis of maz {hab nahwu because of their controversy of thinking in nahwu. However, on the other hand, they are completated each other. The controversy of both ideas is determined by many factors, both internal and external factors and can not be separated from the geographical, socio-cultural, political, economic, and so on which influence the formation of thoughts and attitudes of the people of both cities. It is not surprising, then, that both of them have different levels of rationality, especially in determining the istimbat in Arabic grammar. Basrah inherited the intellectual tradition of the previous generation who were familiar with Hellenistic knowledge with its rational character. Therefore, Nah}wu madhhab Bas}rah is rational. Ah}mad Amin concludes that the distinguishing difference between the two characters of the madhhab is that the madhhab Basrah is freer (unbounded by existing language traditions), more rational, more organized or organized and more influential than madhhab Kufah.

 

REALIBILITY OF THE WORD MEANING

BETWEEN GOOGLE TRANSLATE AND ASHRIY DICTIONARY
Wati Susiawati

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

Abstract: Translations is an attempt to divert the meaning of the text (discourse) of the source language (lughah al-ashl) into the target language (al-lughah al-mustahdafah) or transfer the language of origin (source language, al-lughah al-mutarjam minha) into the target language (target language, al-lughah al-mutarjam ilaiha). The meaning of language is always associated with lafaz (Tenses), structure (Takrib), and context (Siyaq) circumstances. Meaning of words of a language can not be separated from the root word, appointment, and the context of its use. Therefore in ilm al-dilalah found at least nine theory of meaning, namely: Al-Nazariyah Al-Isyariyah, Al-Nazariyyah Al-Tashawwuriyyah, Al-Nazhariyyah Al-Sulukiyyah, Al-nazhariyyah al-siyaqiyyah, Al-nazhariyyah al -tahliliyyah, Al-nazhariyyah al-taulidiyyah, Al-nazhariyyah al-wadhiyyah al-munthiqiyyah fi al-meaning, Al-nazhariyyah moore-Quine, in the process of translation, a translator needs to pay attention to some basic elements in translating both language elements and non-language.

Abstract: This article is aimed at building Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence) from which Islamic education system would be operating to de-radicalization. As the study of the Shariah (Islamic Law and rules), the whole corpus of Fiqh is about the interpretation of the Holy Quran and the Sunnah (the practice and tradition of Muhammad PBUH) through the process of independent reasoning (Ijtihad) carried out by qualified Islamic scholar/s (ulama). Therefore, this study begins to consider the overall process of formulating Islamic Law that should be based on the purpose of Allah and His Messenger. Meanwhile, the way achieving the purpose of Islamic law, among other things, is oriented to achieve mashlahah (wisdom) for the betterness and prosperity of the ummah both in the world and Hereafter. For this reason, the task of ulama is to comprehend the Muslim society and related things entail to contemporary life demands. Although thinking much more thoroughly, Ulama’s independent reasoning results in diversity. Thus, Fiqh is dynamic; supporters of certain ulama with certain Fiqh sects are those who are fanatical. Through the efforts of education, such fanatical and radicalism can be reduced (applied to de-radicalization) through the Fiqh itself. In Fiqh education, curriculum that includes what should be taught and left play an important role as well as educators who organize schools instructions. Religious extremism including fanaticism, intolerance, rigidity, and narrow-mindedness can be removed gradually. Fiqh materials provided at Islamic schools should be aimed at attaining mashlahah through which peace, unity, justice, equality, and capacity of suppressing all kinds of violence would flower among students participants of Islamic schools.

CONCEPT AND APPLICATION OF MALIK FADJAR IN INDONESIA

Nur’aini Ahmad
UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

 

Abstract: In the context of today’s educational world, it has been found that there is a great deal of worry about the implementation of education which is concerned only with cognitive aspect and ignores the affective and psychomotor aspects. Not to mention when looking at educational institutions that often only serves as a tool to serve the interests of the dominant society in order to maintain and reproduce the status quo and has not been successful in humanizing human. This paper shows that in the Islamic perspective, the essence of real education lies in the process of humanizing human (humanization), as reflected in the thinking of Malik Fadjar. To be able to make it happen,  Malik Fadjar expressed the need to review and redefine the view of human being who has been used as the subject of students. The explanation of human and humanity in the Qur’an has provided a theological basis on how man should be understood, treated, and developed in his potential. Through the vision and paradigm of unity tawḥīd, Malik Fadjar believes that Islamic education can produce complete human beings.

FOR POOR MUSLIMS IN INDONESIA

“TAZAKKA” Modern Islamic Boarding School, Batang, Central Java

 

Abstract: Mushrooming Islamic elite schools such as Al-Azhar schools, Al-Izhar schools, SMAIT Nurul Fikri, SMU Madania, etc., are intentionally built to solve the problem of scarcity of ulema who has total mastery of Islamic sciences, modern sciences, and of current scientific discovery. However, after their long practice of education and educational performance, the initial intention is provenly derailed. Studies conducted by Taufiqurrahman (2010), Arifin (2014), and Husniya (2016) showed that the elite schools only reproduced social segregation, social distance, and social gap among Muslim community and their practice of education started to refer to those of capitalistic and materialistic version of education. What had been practiced by the Islamic elite schools has now been similar to the French elite schools studied by Pierre Bordieu (1989;1996), resembling the practices of education in Frances late capitalistic education system. The problem of educational access to elite schools for poor Muslims, therefore, should be overcome by employing a Waqf management aimed at opening access to the poor. This paper elucidates what the solution is and how the Waqf management is able to offer a ready solution to the problem of access and offer an alternative system besides the “culturally-capitalistic” elite schools.

Abstract: Today there is often a disaster of forest fires, floods and landslides that hit several regions in Indonesia. The losses caused by the disaster are enormous. Starting from the loss of the material to cause loss of casualties. The disasters basically happen also because of the lack of human intervention in managing the existing forest.

The efforts undertaken certainly not necessarily through the means of law and written rules, but will be more complete if included with ways that are local wisdom in maintaining and taking care of the forest. One of the local wisdom that can be adopted is the local wisdom of Orang Rimba in Kecamatan Air Hitam Sarolangun Jambi in preserving the Forest in Bukit Dua Belas National Park Area (TNBD).

Abstract: The quest to improve and compete globally has prompted universities around the world to subscribe to quality assurance practices and the Malaysian public universities are no exception. This study was conducted with the aim of exploring the quality assurance practices in Malaysian public universities and the challenges faced by those entrusted to oversee the implementation processes. Utilizing qualitative approach, we examined in-depth the experiences and views of fourteen informants through interviews, who were entrusted with managing quality assurance practices in the selected universities. Four major themes emerged comprising commitment to addressing quality assurance, quality management system, understanding of quality assurance implementation, and challenge to nurture quality culture. Interestingly, the universities have well documented policies on quality assurance implementation and proper structures to oversee the quality assurance practices adhering to government policies and aspirations. However, there were differences in the interpretation and understanding of quality assurance practices among the two major groups of informants, the academics and the full time career administrators. Despite the efforts also, the universities faced with various challenges to nurture quality culture among the staff and much more are still needed if Malaysian universities are to be regarded as providing quality services within the framework of quality assurance practices.

President University, Cikarang

Abstract: One of a biggest nowadays issue is a terrorism, which is affecting almost a whole world. Most of terrorism is conducted by the people who state that they are acting in the name of religion. Those people may misknow their religion or implement it in a misguided way. Therefor, it is a mistake when we make a pattern based on any idea of that kind of religous perception.

The Qur’an is based on the concepts of humanity, tolerance, mercy, love, peace,etc. Muslims who truly live according to these moral precepts is highly refined, thoughtful, tolerant, trustworthy and accommodating. To those around him he gives love, respect, peace of mind and a sense of the joy of life. Hereof, this paper will elaborate the Islamic approaches in a terrorism deradicalization to ensure that Islam has not ever recommended a violence in form of terrorism and to straighten a meaning of some verses in a holy book of Quran regarding a violence and murdering. By understanding the Islamic religion in a good way, we will be able to answer some misconceptions regarding Islam and terrorism.

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Universitas Mercubuana Jakarta

Abstract: Children are the most vulnerable victims of disaster, whether armed conflict or natural. Disasters make them vulnerable for experiencing negative impacts on various aspects of their lives, including their physical and mental health, development and learning. Hence, it is important to enable children to develop the capacity to become resilient. In this qualitative study, we explore factors enabling children to cope, survive, and thrive after tragic disasters. We interviewed 27 child survivors of the Aceh tsunami, who were 8-14 years old at the time of the disaster, and who were 20-27 years old at the time of the study. One common theme found was their use of faith as a source of coping. They relied on faith to cope with the disaster in the following ways: a reliance on the notion that disaster is destined, according to God’s will; there is no reason to be ‘mad at’ God, the disaster is a manifestation of His higher wisdom; those who died in the tsunami are martyrs; and prayer brings peace. Previous studies on how faith can prepare children to manage hardship and cope with disaster are discussed alongside the current study findings. The study concludes with recommendations on strategies to strengthen resiliency among young people within families, schools and community programs.

Mohd Hasrul Kamarulzaman, Hazita Azman, Azizah Mohd Zahidi

Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia

Abstract: Differentiated instruction is a classroom approach that has been in practice for decades. It is a teaching approach that is sparked from the pedagogical shift brought by scholars and practitioners who placed importance on learner differences in delivering the knowledge. Accordingly, given its long-standing practice in the education field, and the need to improve the teaching and learning of English and student achievement in the subject, the Ministry of Education Malaysia has recently launched the Differentiated Teaching and Learning of English Language program to be implemented in the public schools across the country. In this instance, this study seeks to examine the relative influence differentiated English language teaching on student motivation and achievement. Such inquiry towards understanding the implementation of differentiated instruction approach thus should be focused on the teachers’ practice of differentiation i.e. how it is actually realized in the English language classroom, and how has it influenced student learning as seen in student motivation and achievement. In this quantitative study, a questionnaire called MoDiELT was employed to gather the data from the students involved while the standardized test results were provided by the administration officer representing student achievement. The findings revealed the interplay of the three variables i.e. differentiated instruction strategies, motivation, and achievement, as demonstrated through the descriptive and inferential analyses furnished in the study.

 

FACTORS THAT AFFECT STUDENTS’ RETICENCE IN CLASS

Nguyen Van Tuyen

Abstract: It is a widely held axiom that language is intertwined with culture. That is why teachers of languages and researchers show their concern about not only teaching methods but also culture of learning by language learners. In pursuit of empowering their learners’ communicative competence in the target language, teachers need to invest as much as possible into their performance, including being flexible in class management, being mindful of their students’ cultural behaviors or pedagogical psychology, etc., so that they can help their learnerss language skills to be enhanced further. However, it is well-documented that teachers of English and even of other subjects in Asia often complain continually about their students’ reticence in class. As a matter of fact, this is regarded as more negative than positive for the goal of communicative language learning. A recent research into Vietnamese students’ competence in English speaking skill shows that they rank too low in comparison with other regional countries, despite their better skills at reading and writing. It is also obvious that the purpose of learning a language is to use it rather than just to learn about it. So in seeking to shed further light on the causal factors of reticence occurring in classes of students majoring in English at a University, the researcher of this mini research bases on cultural identity, power distance, and collectivists’ culture of teaching and learning as conceptual frameworks. The methods applied for data analysis are qualitative and quantitive ones. The paper found that if student are reluctant to work orally in class, the real purpose of language teaching and learning cannot be fulfilled. Interaction among students as well as between the teacher and students is recommended to be maximized for the sake of communicative language learning.

A COMPARISON OF HIGHER EDUCATION SYSTEM IN INDONESIA

TO THE INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM

Dzuriyatun Toyibah

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

 

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to discover the extent to which higher education in Indonesia differs from that of the international system. Applying literature review from related research and comparing it to the corresponding public policy, some specific characteristics of the Indonesian academic system can be identified. The academic system in Indonesia has developed in different ways from that of the international system. The policies and practices of academic life in Indonesia are dictated by the existing dual system of religious and secular universities, public and private universities. Due to Indonesia’s colonial history the independent higher education system has a very limited connection to the international system. Besides public and private institutions, higher education in Indonesia is classified based on whether the institution is religious or secular. Unlike private institutions in developed countries, private institutions in Indonesia are permitted and expanded because the government cannot accommodate the demands of student enrolment. Private higher education institutions in Indonesia have access to only very limited public funds. On the other hand, globalization and other challenges such as neo-liberalism, massification and internationalisation are common academic discussions in the international system. Regarding implication of this paper, it is necessary for the policy makers in Indonesia to understand the weaknesses of the international system to obtain the best strategy to avoid its negative aspect when it will be adopted to Indonesian higher education system.

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

 

Abstract: This evaluation aims to describe the achievement of Package C program for 3 years. This research uses CIPP model, these are Context, Input, Process, and Product as a tool to evaluate. The method used is qualitative. The evaluation findings on the context dimension are high enough on the administrative aspects required but not in detail regarding to the guidelines of implementing the Package C program. The input dimension is low enough on the competence of 6 tutors, consist of 2 tutors who have educational relevance whereas 1 tutor who does not have a qualification of a bachelor degree. The process dimensions on the results are low enough in managerial systems and have inappropriate procedures such as limitations of class and area of land and tutors’ time as well as the curriculum used based on the needs of the National Exam. The product dimensions are fairly high even though the national exam score for 3 years ago has decreased, but the graduates have changed the work better, and the existence of the package C for the community gains a positive response. Based on the findings, it is recommended that the Package C program needs to be continued. It is advisable that in the development of the program, new strategies need to be built based on the strong research and the relevant context of South Jakarta Education Sub-dept. It also needs to provide a detailed guidance on the learning organization, regular training for managers in managerial and tutor systems in the academic system. As a foundation, making regular meetings and evaluations between managers, tutors and technical speakers as well are needed as the management improvements. For instance, budget and supporting infrastructure to improve learning motivation. For tutors, it needs to utilize tutorial and self-learning. In addition, to face-to-face to improve the ability and independence of the learners. To the citizens of learning should be more serious in carrying out their education because responsibility is required by the public against his diploma. To other evaluators, they should pay attention to aspects of context such as needs of analysis and feasibility analysis of a program. Therefore,  not only the social aspects and worship but also management aspects need to be improved so that the idealism can appear in education.

Suwito, Yusuf Rahman, Izza Rohman

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta, UHAMKA Jakarta

 

Abstract: In a multicultural society, Islamic education that is conscious of the need for creating social harmony across faiths and denominations has more to offer than confessional education in Islamic seminaries and secular universities’ critically approached Islamic studies. Muslim higher educations in the United Kingdom have clearly reflected their awareness of the importance of interfaith and intrafaith understanding in many aspects, and thereby increase their capability to enhance the career prospects of their students while giving them a sense of piety and criticality at the same time. This research study challenges some assumptions that Muslim education in a secular country is more driven by Muslims’ responses to the secular, modern world; and that Muslim education in a non-Muslim majority country is shaped more by majority-minority dynamics; and that Muslim education in the West is oriented more toward missionary objectives. On the other hand, this research strengthens the notion that Muslim education in the modern world is guided more by the need to establish relevance in education. This study, which combines both library and field research methods, finds that higher education institutions run by Muslims in the United Kingdom have consciously offered their students with curriculum, resources, and educational environment that are friendly to diversity of faiths and diversity within Islam in an attempt to make their skills and knowledge relevant to multicultural British society.

Abdul Karim

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

 

Abstract: The present study puts an emphasis on the unclear pattern of leadership and failure of pesantren. This study is an attempt to reject an existing opinion concerning conventional pesantren which is still traditional, individual and a kingdom-based system. (Dhofier, 1999; Geertz, 1960; Buresh, 2002). In other words, pesantren depends on its leader existence. Instead, this study is conducted to strengthen the notion that Kiai leadership pattern in traditional pesantren is collective-collegial and managerial. This study indicates that the leadership of Kiai in pesantren is determined by managerial insights of his ancestors (Mintzberg, 1973; Shalit, 2010; Mardiyah, 2012; Rindanah, 2013). The objectives of this study is to investigate the concept of managerial leadership in several traditional pesantren i.e. pesantren Bendakerep, Gedongan, and Buntet which is the oldest pesantren in Cirebon. In line with the objectives of the study, this study uses the approach of cultural interpretation. This study is conducted quantitatively by using descriptive method and quantitatively by using ex-post facto strengthened by the instruments of interview, observation, and documentation to find the data of Kiai leadership and managerial pattern, and various Kiai’s policy. The questionnaires are used to confirm the students concerning Kiai’s management which are analyzed with categorization, reduction, display, and clarification techniques supported by data triangulation. The findings of this study show that managerial inspiration is initiated through the following steps: 1) Meditation: an effort to obtain inspiration quietly and consistently, legitimize the offspring, have a spirit in leadership, and realize what is believed, 2) Mediation: an effort of Kiai’s self-integration and social interaction, 3) Reflection: an effort of self-correction, organizing policies, conducting endeavors in leadership, referring to the policies of the ancestors’ inspiration and insight. The implication derived from the findings in this study is to confirm and strengthen managerial roles proposed by Mintzberg (1973).

Abstract: A Study has been conducted to examine the correlation between EFL learners’ motivation on English course and their English learning achievement. A mixed method design has been used in this study. Instruments of this research were observation, questionnaire, document and interview. Quantitative method used to measure the correlation between two variables. 30 higher students of public school have been involved in this study. The result showed that the correlation coefficient was r = 0.276, and t value =1.519 with df= 28 So, t-table = 2.048. T-value was lower than t-table (1.519 < 2.048). Thus, Ha is rejected and Ho is accepted. It means that there was correlation between EFL learners’ motivation on English course and their English score. Even though the correlation was positive, but it was low and not significant. Meanwhile, qualitative method used to investigate the students’ perception on their motivation on English courses. The investigation found five explanations. First, in some cases, the method that teacher used for learning activity was not suitable with the students’ condition. Second, most students felt difficulty with grammatical structure. Third, students would understand the material if they felt interesting with their teacher and materials. If they didn’t comfortable with both of those things, they would not understand the material at all. Forth, they didn’t have high curiosity because they were not remembered about the material explanation from their tutor on English course in the next day. It means that they were not learned it again at home. Fifth, 43% of students would rather to studying with their teacher at school than at English course. 36% of students would rather to studying with their teacher at courses that at school because they felt more understand learning at English course and 21% of samples were abstain.

Abstract: In the modern world, the use of technology is an important aspect which has received considerable attention in recent years and has been changing the landscape of language teaching and learning. The applications technology and Mobile-Assisted Language Learning (MALL) programs have become a new trend in this era. Especially they role in second language learning instructions and acquisition. The formerly studies regarding to the effectiveness of teaching using mobile phone on students vocabulary mastery are widely discussed.  While the process of how students acquire those vocabulary from mobile phone is barely touched. That’s why, the purpose of this study is to investigate the process of students in acquiring English vocabulary from mobile phone use and whether the students comprehend the meaning of those vocabularies that they acquire or not. The design of this study employed study case design. The subject of this study was 7 students at fourth grade elementary school. The observation and interview were used as data collection. The research results demonstrated that mobile phone has great potential as an instructional tool in acquairing English vocabulary. The  findings also indicated that the process of acquiring English vocabulary caused by two factors. The first is psycholinguistic factors and the second is social factors. The finding indicated that the psycholinguistic factors hold the significant one. It can be seen from the  repetition and exploration did by their own self in acquiring the English vocabulary. While the social factor  such people around them (their parent and friends) have less contribution in assisting them in acquiring the English vocabulary. Regarding with the comprehension of vocabularies that they acquired, the findings had suggested that three students understand and know the real meaning most of the English vocabulary that they gained from daily mobile phone use. While the rest (four) students knew the words only based on words function  without knowing the real meaning of each English word. Generally findings clearly showed that mobile phone facilitated students in acquiring English vocabularies independently.

Gelar Dwirahayu, Siti Miftah Mubasyiroh, Afidah Mas’ud

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to describe the effects of  teaching with analogy (TWA) model toward students’ mathematical representation. Teaching with analogy is a learning model that provides guidelines for using analogies in teaching and learning. Analogy is the key of this learning model, where analogy helps students in visualizing of abstract concepts and building linkages between something was already known and something new to learn. Furthermore, analogy in this research consist of two idea, analogy to the daily life or analogy to others concept. In TWA, teaching and learning process begins with analogy to daily life situation  such as “speed of vehicle” then continue to analogy concept.  Thus, mathematical representation is students’ ability to express their ideas on mathematically in the form of a visual representation, images, or create a mathematical model. This research was conducted at one of senior high school at Depok city for academic year 2016/2017. The method used in this research is quasi-experiment with Randomized Posttest Only Control Group Design. The sample of research are two classes, one class as the experimental which is students learns by TWA and the others as control class, which is using conventional approach.  Differential is a mathematics subject that is used in TWA models. Data is collected by test of mathematical representation in essay. The results shows that students’ mathematical representation who are taught by learning TWA is higher than students’ mathematical representation who taught by conventional approach. Therefore, TWA can be implemented on mathematics teaching and learnin.

ENHANCING EARLY STUDENTS’ NUMERACY EXPERIENCES

BY CONNECTING HOME AND SCHOOL

Dorsi Desongpa

Monash University, Australia

Abstract: The recent study tends to demonstrate the importance of the parental involvement in children’s mathematical development. The evidence-based practices which identified from literature review will be required to prove the essentials of the parental involvement in supporting children’ early mathematics. This study also presents the strategies to avoid the parents’ reluctant in joining the program. As the children spend their time longer at home, many educational researcher agree that parents should be able to design the learning activities at home in term of increasing their learning development. This study also demonstrates how the school collaborate with the parents in effective ways. Thus, this study argues that children cannot simply send to schools and allow the schoolteachers work with them in very limited time but parent also need to be creative in requiring the things at home to be used in building mathematics activities.

Abstract: Climate and environmental changes have been provoking many people in the world to pay more concern on issues in environmental field.  The greenhouse effect, ozone layers destruction, coral reef bleaching, floods, and global warming phenomena became alarm clock which awaking global world citizens to think and take actions to prevent human beings from worse situation.  As human beings, we have to consider that our earth is not only for our generation, but also for our next generations.  It is important to shift the common perception that this earth is treasure from our ancients to the perception that this earth is like a “loan” from our children and grandchildren.  So that, it is important to maintain the balance between using the natural resources and the good ecosystem as well.  Responding this condition, UNESCO has been initiating a program entitled Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) since 1990s. Indonesia as a part of global world citizen has been supporting this program through the government policies.  In education policies, which issued by the Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC) of Indonesia, Education for Sustainable Development has been addressed in the curriculum especially in elementary, senior high, and highschool.  The former curriculum which known as the 2006 curriculum or Curriculum of Educational Unit/School Level (Kurikulum Tingkat Satuan Pendidikan- KTSP) accommodates ESD values in stated students expected basic competencies (Kompetensi Dasar-KD).  In 2013, the Ministry of Education and Culture of Indonesia socialized the new curriculum which known as the 2013 curriculum.  This  new curriculum designed to respond the updated-challenges of nowadays and future life.  The government think that students have to be prepared with proper attitudes, knowledges, and also skills so they can compete and “survive” in the future.  However, the implementation of the curriculum still trapped into cognitive area, while the environment in need of real action.  This paper presents alternative curriculum of environment education in junior highschool.

Ulfah Fajarini, Nurul Handayani
UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

 

Abstract: This article analyzes  coping mechanism under the restriction of women’s role in domestic sphere. These women are members of Jam’iyyat al-Nisa Assembly of Muslim (Majelis Taklim Jam’iyyat al-Nisa – MTJN). This research is conducted using qualitative method, namely direct observation and in-depth interview. The result of the research shows that these women join MTJN to get away from their repressing domestic life, to meet friends with the same experience, to share their stories, and to do “fun” activities like joining the campaign of political parties or local elections, getting Islamic clothing and free picnic, as well as gossiping which some times could lead to the embarrassment of their husband. Going to MTJN does not solve their problems,  but they are not going to file for a divorce for afraid of the negative “stigma” of becoming a widow or the social mockery which is common in the Tangerang patriarchal society. Most of  Jam’iyyat al-Nisa members use the assembly of Muslim as their legitimate coping mechanism and stress release particularly in the subordinate husband-wife relationship.

Eko Hadi Gunawan, Ridi Ferdiana, Sri Suning Kusumawardani

Universitas Gadjah Mada

Abstract: In Indonesia the condition of education in every region is still uneven. One of the problems is the limited number of educators and infrastructure that inadequate, especially in remote areas outside Java, such as in the islands of Sumatra and Kalimantan. Internet that unavailable to reach the rural areas, inadequate a human resources and computer resources become obstacles to perform of distance learning process. So it takes distance learning media solutions that are able to solve these challenges. In this paper we explain how the distance learning process can be done with the learning media that has low resources, can run without depend on the internet and student are able to do what can be done when they use distance learning actually such as accessing all the materials, questions, write evaluation for teachers and get updates both material and questions. Learning media system is divided into two parts. Client used by students and server used by teacher. From the server side, teachers can write materials and exams that will be answered by students. In client side, students can bring learning media and access all the subject matter and exams that have been published by the teacher wherever they are. The results of the test and evaluations from students and the updating of materials and tasks that published by the teacher can be updated when the learning media of students connect to the Internet and synchronize to the server. The result of testing of this learning media which tested in the rural area of Riau and Central Borneo stated that the limitations of the internet to deliver the distance learning material can be overcome by using synchronization system on learning media. The system is consuming the minimum resources and learning process is more interactive both in terms of students and teachers.

Universitas Gadjah Mada

 

Abstract: When observed in socio-cultural context, border regions have strong interdependence with border societies. Judging from current facts, border societies remain isolated, underdeveloped and abandoned. Temajuk is a real example based on the educational background of the society in terms of its quality and quantity. However, Temajuk has the potential for leading sectors due to its proximity with neighboring states geographically and shared melayu culture. Thus, basic rights to have access for better education and its supporting facilities as stipulated in constitution should be accommodated to its fullest as manifested in urban areas. This research paper aims to study the portrait of education in border regions and its potential as well as challenges, specifically in Temajuk Village which shares its border with Kampong Telok Melano, Sarawak, Malaysia. The research is legal research. The data collecting method applied for this research is mainly focused on literature resources. Further, the Author performed field observations to obtain primary, secondary, and non-legal material. These materials were analyzed using qualitative method. The result of field observations showed that insufficient attention and inefficient management of education from the central government in Temajuk have triggered challenges inter alia the difficulty of access to schools, inadequate infrastructure and supporting facilities, not enough students at the high school level, the number of students that continue their studies to higher education are deficient, and there are insufficient numbers of teachers in certain subjects. Ultimately, the Author highly recommends the Indonesian government should necessarily draw high attention, set action plan and take prominent steps to accelerate the development of infrastructure as well as enhance the quality of students domiciled at the border, considering its significance toward the livelihood of border societies and in comparison with neighboring states.

IMPLICATION FOR TEACHER PREPARATION PROGRAM

Arnis Silvia

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta

 

Abstract: Teaching and learning is not only about skills and knowledge of language teaching, but also about what it means to be a language teacher (Richards 2008). This meaning-making process can only be made if teachers have clearer sense of who they are: ‘the professional, cultural, political, and individual identities which they claim or which are assigned to them’ Varghese, et al (2005, p. 22). Teacher identity(ies), is therefore a crucial element to be emphasized in teacher education in order to prepare teacher candidates developing their conceptions of ‘self-as-teacher’ and formulating their identities in institutional, personal, and professional settings (Farrel, 2009). This paper explores the importance of understanding teacher identity to be incorporated in teacher preparation program. This literature study reviews the studies in the past two decades related to language teacher education from various perspectives and focuses. This paper concludes that by understanding teacher identity, teacher trainers could prepare teacher candidates who are having strong professional identity and able to deal with any challenges they overcome in their early years of teaching.

WITH SYMBOLIC EXECUTION

Rizal Yaakop, Ainul Aziz, Zarina Shukur, Rizal Yusof

Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia

Abstract: The well-defined semantics and syntax of formal specification languages make them appropriate for expressing a precise description of the user requirements in software development. To ensure that it is well-formed and reflects user requirements, the specification needs to be validated. There are several approaches to demonstrate the validity of the formal specification. Testing technique is easy to use and well understood by many people. Testing to validate a formal specification means executing the specification against a set of test case. Executing the specification against a set of test case can be done through animation. There are three techniques for animating a formal specification. These are actual execution, symbolic execution and rapid prototyping. Symbolic execution is used in this study. Symbolic execution has been used as a technique to validate Telephone Book Specification System. A set of test case has been prepared to integrate with Telephone Book Specification System for validation process. The results of this study shows three of the test case has been 100% validated through Z/EVES. Our expected results and Z/EVES output has indicated strong evidence that symbolic execution with Z/EVES perform an outstanding performance. Output from Z/EVES has raised our confidence to proceed with other schemas in Telephone Book Specification System such as Delete Telephone Schema and Find Telephone Schema. This study has proven the validation through symbolic execution will reduce so many problems and meet user requirement. Supports from ZTC and Z/EVES have assisted this study to get a very precise and concise results thus reduce human error.

FOR IMPROVING STUDENTS’ ABILITY IN VOCABULARY

Zaharah, Cut Dhien Nurwahidah, Ibnu Sina

UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta, Universitas Pamulang

 

Abstract: Over the years, many different approaches have been created and studied. Some have been developed by educational researchers by investigating the learning process. Other approaches have been developed by classroom teachers experimenting with their own teaching to solve specific classroom problems. Thus the effectiveness of teaching English focusing on grammatical rule is not considered anymore. Some of teaching method had been introduced . It is a teaching technique that teacher uses to instruct students who are in the process of learning a second or foreign language. This approach, called the Total Physical Response or TPR, introduces the language through the use of commands (imperative sentences) and has students demonstrate their understanding through action responses. Total Physical Response (TPR) is “A language teaching method built around the coordination of speech and action; it attempts to teach language through physical (motor) activity” . Learning English means learning the elements and skills in the language. Vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, and spelling are language elements, while language skills are listening, writing, reading and speaking. In the process of learning a foreign language, the ability to understand the language greatly depends on one’s knowledge of vocabulary besides the other elements of language itself. Vocabulary is one of the important language elements that learners must master. The learner who has more words has better chance in practicing English. In other word, they can more easily master reading, listening, speaking, and writing.
