TPD@Scale Indonesia publishes a case study on Putera Sampoerna Foundation’s Teacher Learning Center (TLC) Program on the Asia Pacific Education Review. Written by Cher Ping Lim, Juliana & Min Liang, the paper examines a TLC in Kudus, a regency in Central Java, Indonesia, through the activity theory approach.
Indonesia faces challenges in teacher access to quality TPD due to limitations set by geography, gender, special needs, economy, and policy. In response to this, Putera Sampoerna Foundation’s School Development Outreach established TLCs.
These are the main findings:
- that teachers learn in the TLC through different TPD activities;
- that different ICTs are found to mediate the professional learning activities, learning resources, learning support, and assessments in the TLC; and
- that three key stakeholders—the local government, teacher working groups, and school principals—play significant roles in supporting teachers’ professional learning in the TLC.
Open access to the publication is made possible under the TPD@Scale Coalition for the Global South through the support of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada.
