The 10th Annual National Teacher Forum 2018


Teachers are at the forefront of human resource development through education. The quality of education is inseparable from the responsibility of a teacher in implementing the learning process to convey knowledge to learners. In the era of industrial revolution 4.0, the learning process must follow the trend and its development in order to stay in line with the needs of the era.

The hallmark of the industrial revolution 4.0 is the emergence of disruptive innovation in all walks of life. These urgent demands have not been fully adapted in the context of our current education. Hence, learning models need to be improved so that education is able to access the process of digitalization in learning.

Disruptive innovation is a reality because the development of this digital-based technology has the potential to radically change the social structure. This is unavoidable. The business world is now undergoing changes such as: transportation mode (Gojek/Grab), changes in business model that is integrated online in the trading of various world products including in Indonesia.

Currently, many educational institutions in the world have offered Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) which means that the education system works in the realm of digitalization which is slowly becoming something that is difficult to avoid in the future. Schools are required to be able to make changes radically in terms of changes in the paradigm of school learning. Perspectives and innovations need to be possessed by teachers in enhancing the three integrated student skills: (1) a formidable mentality representing a work ethic readiness to compete, (2) innovative high-minded reasoning and (3) digital-based solutions representing cognitive skills, and the value of wisdom as a pillar representing personality / character.

The 10th Annual National Teacher Forum 2018 which is abbreviated as TING X, is the tenth national seminar held by Faculty of Teacher Training and Education of Universitas Terbuka (FKIP-UT). It is an appropriate arena for sharing knowledge, experience and strategy of developing the role of education in preparing human beings who have three skills of innovations in the era of industrial revolution 4.0.

TING X will be held on Saturday and Sunday, 24-25 November 2018 at the Universitas Terbuka Convention Center (UTCC), Universitas Terbuka Headquarters, Tangerang, Banten.
