Online Learning Community: A Case Study of Teacher Professional Development in Indonesia
Intercultural Education Volume 23, Number 1, ISSN 1467-5986
This paper investigates the concept of online learning community (OLC) to address the issues of teacher professional development practice in twenty-first-century Indonesia. Teachers in Indonesia are trained in a "conventional way", hence, not ready to prepare the younger generations for entrance into the twenty-first-century complex life and work environment. The pedagogical transformation of a teacher can be facilitated through teacher professional development. Recent studies show that OLC holds great promise in improving teachers' professional practice. This paper presents key results of the introduction and trialling of OLC with Indonesian teachers and teacher educators between 2009 and 2010 and aims to explore the feasibility of this model to support professional development of teachers in this era. The social learning interactions among community members were examined using Scardamalia's Twelve Socio-Cognitive Determinants of Knowledge Building and Hoftsede's Cultural Dimension Review for Indonesia.
