PROGRAM Academic Recharging Scholarship dari Dikti

PROGRAM Academic Recharging


  1. Dasar Hukum
Undang-undang Nomor 20 Tahun 2003 mengamanatkan dosen sebagai tenaga pendidikan di perguruan tinggi harus mempunyai kualifikasi minimum dan sertifikasi sesuai dengan jenjang kewenangan mengajarnya (Pasal 42).
Undang-undang Nomor 14 tahun 2005 Tentang Guru dan Dosen menyebutkan bahwa dosen harus memiliki kemampuan untuk mewujudkan tujuan pendidikan nasional (Pasal 45).
Selanjutnya, Undang-undang Nomor 14 tahun 2005 mengamanatkan dosen untuk meningkatkan dan mengembangkan kualifikasi akademik dan kompetensi secara berkelanjutan sejalan dengan perkembangan ilmu pengetahuan, teknologi, dan seni (Pasal 60).
Pentingnya dosen yang disebutkan dalam Undang-undang di atas dijabarkan dalam Permen Nomor 42 Tahun 2007. Kualitas dosen akan sangat menentukan tinggi-rendahnya kualitas suatu perguruan tinggi, dan pada gilirannya menentukan pula tinggi-rendahnya kualitas pemimpin bangsa di masa yang akan datang.
Gambaran Hukum Sebagai lembaga pendidikan, perguruan tinggi merencanakan dan melaksanakan program-program yang akan meningkatkan kualitas pendidikan dan kemajuan kelembagaannya, sehingga tujuan pendidikan nasional dapat dicapai. Untuk mencapai tujuan tersebut, perguruan tinggi paling tidak harus mengembangkan kelembagaannya (institutional development) bersama-sama dengan mengembangkan sumberdaya manusianya (human resources development).

Pengembangan kelembagaan dapat dilakukan melalui kerjasama dengan perguruan tinggi luar negeri yang minimal setara kualitasnya di bidang-bidang yang menjadi unggulannya. Kerjasama di bidang penelitian; pendidikan; pengembangan kelembagaan; pertukaran staf pengajar; atau kegiatan terkait lainnya, merupakan langkah strategis yang perlu ditempuh oleh perguruan tinggi Indonesia agar kualitas kelembagaannya menjadi lebih baik, sehingga dapat berdiri sama tinggi dan duduk sama rendah dengan perguruan tinggi dunia lainnya.

Kerjasama yang dibangun dengan perguruan tinggi mitra luar negeri baru bisa berjalan dengan baik, jika ditangani oleh tenaga-tenaga yang profesional di bidangnya masing-masing, agar dapat mengimbangi kemampuan dan wawasan akademis dari mitra luar negerinya. Tenaga-tenaga profesional ini tak lain tak bukan adalah para staf pengajar (dosen) yang dimiliki oleh perguruan tinggi yang akan melakukan kerjasama tersebut. Dengan kata lain para dosen merupakan modal dasar dari perguruan tinggi untuk meningkatkan mutu kelembagaannya. Upaya untuk mengembangkan sumberdaya manusia sebagai modal dasar perguruan tinggi merupakan bagian integral dari proses peningkatan kualitas pendidikan.

Pengembangan sumberdaya manusia perguruan tinggi merupakan salah satu program utama Ditjen Pendidikan Tinggi yang terus menerus dijalankan hingga sekarang. Hasil nyata dari program tersebut adalah sekitar 55 % dari staf pengajar perguruan tinggi di Indonesia (PTN dan PTS) telah bergelar S2/S3. Dan cukup banyak birokrat di lembaga-lembaga pemerintah (dari eselon 2 hingga menteri); lembaga tinggi negara; staf ahli di departemen pemerintah; dewan direksi di BUMN atau perusahaan swasta adalah dosen-dosen aktif dari perguruan tinggi. Di akhir jabatannya, para mantan birokrat, mantan anggota dewan; mantan staf ahli, atau mantan dewan direksi akan kembali ke kampusnya masing-masing dengan segudang pengalaman yang berharga di bidang birokrasi atau administrasi, akan tetapi tertinggal jauh dalam perkembangan & kemajuan di bidang ilmu keahliannya. Kondisi ini akan berdampak negatif terhadap kualitas pendidikan di lembaganya, ketika yang bersangkutan diminta menjadi pembimbing mahasiswa program S3, atau memberi kuliah di program pascasarjana. Upaya untuk memberdayakan kembali staf pengajar perguruan tinggi yang disebutkan di atas merupakan salah satu tujuan dari Program Academic Recharging Ditjen Pendidikan Tinggi.
Program Academic Recharging merupakan program Dikti dengan manfaat ganda, yaitu pengembangan kelembagaan perguruan tinggi melalui program kemitraan dengan PT luar negeri, dan pengembangan sumberdaya staf pengajarnya melalui pengayaan akademik atau kerjasama penelitian dengan mitra luar negerinya.

2. Alasan Kegiatan Dilaksanakan
Program Academic Recharging (PAR) diarahkan agar tujuan pendidikan nasional dapat lebih cepat dicapai, dan kualitas PT Indonesia secara dapat ditingkatkan menjadi setara dengan PT internasional
PAR merupakan kegiatan pengembangan sumberdaya manusia dengan manfaat ganda, yaitu mengembangkan atau memberdayakan kembali dosen perguruan tinggi dan membangun/memperkuat kelembagaan dari PT terkait.
Di masa lalu, kerjasama antara perguruan tinggi Indonesia dengan perguruan tinggi luar negeri lebih banyak tercantum di atas kertas dalam bentuk MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) dan sangat sedikit PT Indonesia dapat menindak lanjutinya karena kendala pendanaan. Melalui PAR ini, PT Indonesia dapat menghidupkan MoU-MoU yang telah ditanda tangani, yang pada gilirannya akan meningkatkan dan memperkuat atmosfir akademik di kampusnya masing-masing.

Dengan adanya PAR, PT Indonesia daya tawar dalam mengembangkan program-program kelembagaan dan/atau sumberdaya manusia dengan calon mitra luar negerinya, di berbagai bidang akademik, seperti penelitian, pendidikan, pengembangan kelembagaan, pertukaran staf pengajar, dan lainnya.
Melalui PAR ini, staf pengajar dari perguruan tinggi Indonesia dapat menimba pengalaman dari mitranya di luar negeri, yang dapat diterapkan di institusinya masing-masing setelah melalui proses penyesuaian sesuai dengan kondisi setempat. Di samping menimba pengalaman, staf pengajar yang melakukan kunjungan tersebut dapat menjalin kerjasama dengan mitranya, dan pada umumnya diawali dengan kerjasama di bidang penelitian dan menulis makalah bersama untuk dipublikasikan di jurnal internasional. Kegiatan seperti ini akan memberikan dampak positif yang besar bagi pengembangan kelembagaan perguruan tinggi dimana staf pengajar itu berada.
Program ini juga memberi kesempatan bagi para pesertanya untuk menyegarkan kembali kembali (academic recharging) bidang ilmu yang ditekuninya agar dapat mengikuti perkembangan terkini. Proses ini penting bagi peserta yang telah lama meninggalkan dunia akademik karena menduduki jabatan birokratis atau administratif, dan bermaksud kembali ke dunia pendidikan. Dengan pengalaman birokrasi dan hubungan yang luas yang diperoleh selama menjabat, staf bersangkutan dapat dengan cepat menjalin kerjasama yang aktif dan saling menguntungkan antara perguruan tinggi asal dengan perguruan tinggi di luar negeri.

Dengan PAR yang diluncurkan, diperkirakan kualitas perguruan tinggi akan meningkat secara nyata, baik di bidang kelembagaan, akademik, mau pun sumberdaya manusianya.

1. Uraian Kegiatan
Program Academic Recharging (PAR) merupakan kegiatan pengelolaan pengiriman staf dosen madya mau pun senior ke perguruan tinggi luar negeri, dimana para peserta yang dikirimkan merupakan dosen tetap dari PTN dan PTS di Indonesia. Ada tiga skema PAR berdasarkan peruntukannya, yaitu

PAR untuk para Pengelola Program Pascasarjana di perguruan tinggi Indonesia (PAR-A) dengan maksimum waktu 2 minggu;
PAR untuk dosen senior (Profesor dan/atau Doktor) yang akan melakukan kegiatan penyegaran keilmuan (PAR-B) dengan maksimum waktu 4 bulan;
PAR untuk dosen lulusan program Doktor yang akan melakukan kegiatan kerjasama penelitian dengan mitra luar negerinya (PAR-C) dengan maksmimum waktu 4 bulan.
Kegiatan beasiswa PAR ke luar negeri ini diawali dengan pengumuman kepada seluruh PTN dan PTS di Indonesia untuk mengirimkan para calon yang telah siap. Kemudian, seleksi berkas dilakukan terhadap berkas-berkas pelamar yang diterima ke Dit. Ketenagaan. Hasil dari seleksi berkas akan diumumkan, dan para pelamar yang lolos akan mengikuti proses seleksi berikutnya, yaitu proses presentasi.

Dalam proses presentasi, para pelamar akan memaparkan rencana kegiatannya selama PAR di PT luar negeri tujuan dihadapan anggota tim panelis. Pelamar yang lolos dari seleksi tahap kedua ini yang akan didanai oleh Dikti melalui Program Beasiswa Pendidikan Luar Negeri untuk melakukan kegiatan PAR.

Proses persiapan keberangkatan dari para peserta, diawali dengan penanda tanganan kontrak kegiatan PAR antara Ditjen Dikti di satu pihak dengan para Pimpinan PTN atau Kopertis (sebagai wakil dari PTS) di lain pihak, untuk menentukan besaran anggaran yang diperlukan bagi tiap peserta (untuk kategori PAR-B dan PAR-C). Bagi kategori PAR-A, Ditjen Dikti akan melakukan penanda tanganan kontrak langsung dengan tiap-tiap Direktur Sekolah Pascasarjana yang terpilih menjadi peserta PAR.
Setelah para peserta berangkat ke perguruan tinggi luar negeri yang dituju, Dit. Ketenagaan melakukan kegiatan monitoring untuk memantau kemajuan dan hambatan yang dialami oleh para peserta atau kendala yang dihadapi para institusi yang mengirimkan mereka.\

Beasiswa ADS - Australian Development Scholarship (ADS) for Indonesian

ADS Scholarship - Australian Development Scholarship (ADS) for Indonesian

Scholarships have played a significant role in Australia`s development cooperation program in Indonesia, with around 11,000 scholarships provided over more than 50 years. ADS continues to be a major component of the program with up to 400 scholarships offered in 2011.

The off-shore component of the ADS Program is managed by IDP through an IDP established ADS Project Office in Jakarta to ensure efficient end effective administration of the ADS scheme in Indonesia. Each year, the Australian Government sponsors people from a number of developing countries to study in Australia through Australian Development Scholarships (ADS). The Australian Development Scholarship program in Indonesia aims to promote private and public sector human resource development in areas of agreed development priority.

This is achieved by providing post-graduate scholarships for Indonesians to study in Australia and by working in close cooperation with the Indonesian Government to deliver a program which is flexible to Indonesia`s human resource development needs.

Consistent with the principles of AusAID`s education and training policy (August 1996), the ADS program is implemented to ensure : quality (of project personnel, fellows and procedures); transparency (of selection); equity and merit (in the awarding of fellowships); access (of beneficiaries to scholarship documentation and information); and consistency (in award administration). The Main Objectives of the ADS Program are:

  • To assist Indonesian public and private institutions meet identified institutional objectives and training needs through the provision of postgraduate education to selected staff;
  • To assist individuals to increase their capacity to contribute to Indonesian institutions and professions by the provision of postgraduate study opportunities in Australia;
  • To assist alumni of the ADS scheme to maintain and update their academic and professional skills;
  • To promote Indonesia and Australia`s equity in development policies;
  • To deliver training that complements the human resource development goals outlined in AusAID`s Indonesian Country Program Strategy; and
  • To select high quality candidates with the ability to succeed at tertiary study in Australia, with minimal extensions and with the abiliity contribute to Indonesia`s development.
ADS Categories
Australian Development Scholarships (ADS) provide opportunities for Indonesians to study in Australia at POSTGRADUATE (S2/S3) level. Four hundred scholarships are expected to be awarded in 2012 for commencement in 2012/2013. Candidates must undertake study in one of the four areas of development priority (see homepage). In Indonesia, the Australian Development Scholarship program is offered in 2 main categories: "Public" and "Open".
Public Sector Category
Public sector applicants are employees from Government organizations, state universities and state owned enterprises. Their applications must be approved by training or foreign cooperation bureaus (BKLN) of their local or central agencies before being submitted to the ADS Program Office. Public sector candidates from government agencies outside Jakarta may apply directly to the ADS Program Office with the approval of their relevant Kakanwil or Kadinas. Public Sector applications must identify in writing on the application form the agency`s reason for nominating the applicant in terms of the agency`s human resource development needs, the anticipated benefit of the applicant`s proposed study to the agency, a proposed strategy for utilizing the applicant`s knowledge, skills and qualification gained and commitment to adopting the strategy and supporting the applicant. Calon Pegawai Negeri (CPNS) are not allowed to apply. Open Category
Open Category applicants are from private organisations and universities and this category is also open to recent university graduates. No prior Government approval is required for people applying in the Open Category, and applications are to be submitted directly to the ADS Program Office. They require, where relevant, the endorsement of the agency, institution or private university in which the applicant is working or studying. Applications are submitted directly to the ADS Office. Applications must identify in writing the anticipated benefit of the applicant`s proposed study to the agency, where relevant, and include, in such cases, a proposed strategy for utilizing the applicant`s knowledge, skills and qualifications. Public servants (Pegawai Negeri) cannot apply in the Open category.
Targeted Category
A third category exists for candidates who are identified by their organisations in consultation with the ADS Program. Candidates within this category must be identified by their home organization and must not apply to the ADS Program independently of their employer.
`Targeted Category` candidates are employed by organisations which are identified by the Government of Indonesia and Government of Australia (through AusAID) as being strategically aligned with the Development priorities of the Government of Indonesia. Candidates within this category may also be employed by government organizations, state owned enterprises, non-government organizations (NGOs), civil society organizations (CSOs) and key state and private higher education institutions which service the training needs of these organizations. Eligibilities
In General, Candidates must :
  • Be an Indonesian citizen and not have permanent residence in Australia or New Zealand;
