What is the most challenging aspect of teaching for you?
The challenging aspect of education is how to improve individual human resources and its society
What kind of relationship do you have with your students?
I try to FACILITATE their learning. Students are adults and active learners. They should take their responsibility in their learning. They are the counterpart of their teachers. The teacher should promote communication in an unlimited time and space.
What is the secret to instilling interest in knowledge?
The secret is not instilling but constructing
What is your philosophy on homework and grading?
Homework is just for preaparation/apperception for next activity
There is no the best grading.
Is it possible to teach creativity? how?
Creativity can not be teach, but it need to be facilitated and encouraged. Creativity is something life. So the nature of students is their creativity. Creativity will come out from mutual synergistic interaction among students, teachers, environment and its society in the context of space and time.
How do you establish authority? What do you do when a discipline problem arises?
It is very bad if the teacher think authority first. It should be the last. It is better if the authority is the results of a process. So the teacher will get his authority in nature.
How do you individualize your teaching? How do you handle the different ability levels of students in classes?
We need various method, resources and schema in order to facilitate differences and individual. Teacher should facilitate individual students to learn. There are various schema: schema of teaching, schema of interaction, and schema of achieving students' competencies. Method of teaching should flexible and dynamic.
What cooperative learning means to you. How have you used it?
I prefer cooperative approach than competitive one. Cooperation starts from the opens of mind, ability to hear, wishes to receive, good perception, positive thinking, ability to response, ability to deliver question, wishes to share, develop similar goal, develop similar method and scheme, provide space and time.
What do you expect from your supervisor? What qualities would you like to have in your principal?
Principal should understand philosophy to get clear picture of education; and should have concrete action to get meaningful educational practices.

My biggest issues of education is how to liberate education and education as a need. The key words of education issues are critical thinking, communication and universal.
Would it be a good thing if teachers had economic incentives based on student performance?
No, it is not good. Teachers' incentives should not directly based on students performance. Because education is for a longer term program
Besides more financial resources, what do today's schools lack?
Schools lack of vision and capacity and lack of collaborations
What are some ways you have incorporated technology into the classroom.
Technology should be perceived as a tool for communicating and promote interaction among the students and teachers.
In light of new technologies, do we need to reinvent the school, its methods and objectives?
To some extent, technology is teachers' creativity
If you could create the ideal school, what would it be like?
The ideal school should be a laboratory for students' development

In 20 years to come, the schools will influenced by mix factors e.g. local, national, international, etc

My professional goal is HRD. In 5 years to come I want to contribute/share my capacity systemically, rather than individual or a small group.
What qualities would you need to see in someone before advising him/her to go into teaching?
The teacher should make sure that education is the process of translating and to be translated.

    According to the interview, I agree with Prof. Dr. Marsigit, M.A.’s statement that in the learning, teacher is a facilitator for the students. Learning is not a process of transfer of knowledge from teacher to student, but students must costuct knowledge by themselves. Students aren’t the empty vessels which teachers filled with the knowledge. We must remember that all of students have the skills that they had before. Therefore, the teacher should help students to develop and facilitate them to construct their knowledge. One of some ways of facilitating students is using a variety of learning methods, resources and schema in order to facilitate differences and individual.

    Pembelajaran yang seharusnya dilakukan yaitu yang memberikan kesempatan kepada siswa untuk mengkonstruksi pemahamannya sendiri. Guru harus mampu memfasilitasi siswa dalam hal ini, namun bukan hanya berperan sebagai pentransper pengetahuan melainkan sebagai fasilitator. Sehingga nantinya siswa akan lebih kreatif dan mengembangkan cara berpikir mereka. Jika keadaan pendidikan telah mencapai seperti demikian maka pantaslah kita merasa senang. Guru kita harus lebih berusaha untuk meningkatkan kualitas pembelajaran yang dilakukan. Kreativitas bisa dihasilka karena siswa diberikan kesempatan seluas-luasnya untuk mengembangkan dirinya. Namun yang tidak kalah penting ialah menanamkan semangat dan motivasi dalam diri siswa agar mau membangun pemahamannya sendiri. Menumbuhkan karakter pejuang tangguh dalam belajar adalah hal yang akan semakin memperkokoh output dari teori konstruktivisme yang kita terapkan dalam kelas.

    Saya sangat mengapresiasi pandangan tentang pendidikan dari Prof. Marsigit. Saya pun sependapat dengan Prof. bahwa kreativitas tidak bisa diajarkan, tapi perlu difasilitasi dan didorong. Dalam hal pembelajaran, maka guru lah yang seharusnya memberikan motivasi dan dorongan kepada siswa untuk mengembangkan kreativitasnya. Misalnya dengan melibatkan siswa dalam penemuan konsep. Kreativitas akan keluar dari interaksi sinergis antara siswa, guru, lingkungan dan masyarakatnya dalam konteks ruang dan waktu. Saya setuju, dengan adanya pemberian scaffolding dari guru, maupun pihak lain akan membantu siswa dalam proses belajar untuk mencapai pengetahuan.
