How have your past experiences prepared you for teaching? How did you become interested in education?
I develop the schema before teaching.
I perceive education is belong to students
Who was your most influential teacher and why?
My influential figure is Paul Ernest, Jaworsky, Ebbutt and Straker, Piaget, Immanuel Kant
What is your educational philosophy?
My educational philosophy is progressive, democratic, student centred, constructivist, facilitating, education for all, liberating, collaboration, sharing, education as a need, development, ...
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.
What issues in education are of greatest concern to you?
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
What do you think schools will be like in 20 years?
In 20 years to come, the schools will influenced by mix factors e.g. local, national, international, etc
What are your professional goals? Where do you want to be in five years?
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.

  1. Ada banyak sekali subjek yang diajarkan oleh Bapak Profesor. Secara pribadi saya mengungkapkan kekaguman saya. Selanjutnya saya pun menjadi paham bahwa memang ada kesalingterkaitan dalam antar bagian ranah filsafat sehingga tak mungkin mempelajari yang satu tanpa mempelajari yang lainnya.

  2. Sangat penting dalam proses pembelajaran untuk selalu mengedepankan olah pikir kritis. Kritis harus berdasarkan alasan-alasan yang bisa dipertanggungjawabkan. Meski demikian, seseorang tak perlu takut salah ketika mengungkapkan pemikiran kritisnya, terutama dalam ranah belajar filsafat. Karena filsafat bukan masalah benar dan salah.

  3. Salah satu subjek penting pengajaran untuk calon pengajar adalah microteaching. Bagaimana mungkin seorang pengajar mengetahui cara mengajar yang baik jika hanya belajar teori tanpa pernah mempraktekkannya? Microteaching adalah praktek awal mengajar, nanti saat sudah benar-benar terjun mengajar, akan tercipta terus penyempurnaan.

  4. Saya sangat setuju dengan jawaban Prof.Marsigit tentang sekolah yang ideal adalah sebuah laboratorium yang dapat benar benar mengembangkan potensi siswa.
    Laboratorium ini secara umum adalah tempat eksplorasi, penelitian dan pengembangan maupun beberapa pemahaman konsep lain yang dapat langsung di aplikasikan dalam keterkaitan subjek dan obyek tertentu.
    Jika dalam laboratorium sudah tentu ada standar operasional yang harus dilaksanakan, maka dengan sperti itu tanggung jawab siswa akan tunbuh dan berkembang.
    Ketika dalam laboratorium maka sudah pasti berperan aktif, sebuah adalah tergantung pada dirinya, dari hal inilah juga akan membiasakan sikap kemandirian yang sangat tinggi. Dengan mengatasi masalah, sesuai dengan kemampuan dan pengetahuan. Sudah tentu oeran guru tetap mendampingi, dan tidak lepas tabgan begitu saja.
    Dan saya rasa masih sangat bnyak lagi keunggulan pembelajaran yang dibuat dengan model pembelajaran menyerupai laboratorium, yang tentunya sesuai dengan kurikulum yang berjalan dengan pebnekatan pembelajaran berbasis masalah ataupun dengan metode lain yang relevan
